Abaqus ODB Extractor and Builder Tool (OEBT) Plug-in

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on Sep 17, 2019 9:40:00 AM

On many occasions, particularly when our model size is large or when automatically generated Field/History outputs are used by default, the resulting output database of an analysis can be of significant size. Typically (at least for quasi-statics, statics), the user is mainly interested in retaining the first and/or last frames of generated output, as the main focus is the final deformed configuration, when a loading has been fully ramped up (100% loading). Additionally, when automatically generated output requests are used, predefined default output variables are written in the results database, whereas the user might only have interest in von Mises stresses and resulting displacements in the model.

In this blog post, we will be showcasing the OEBT plug-in, that allows the user to select the specific results that they would like to keep, and populate them in a new results' database.

In this blog post, we will be showcasing some of the plug-ins, available for Abaqus.

A plug-in essentially is a small piece of software installed into another application (Abaqus in this case) in order to extend the application’s capabilities.

 Typically, plug-ins are categorized either as kernel plug-ins or as GUI plug-ins. The first ones consist of functions written using the Abaqus Scripting Interface. GUI plug-ins contain commands that create Graphical User Interfaces.
