Checks the d3hsp file for various model information.

This program scans the d3hsp file and gives summarized information about model size, contact definitions, mass and energies per property, material and element type definitions. It is also possible to define groups of properties and calculate the sum of masses (incl. discrete masses) for the groups.

usage: check-hsp [options] d3hsp-file]


-msum overview material definitions (etyp, etc)
-psum property summary (mtyp, elements, mass, etc)
-pgroup <file>
property group summary for
syntax eg: 8001-8999, 9015, ...
-matsum <file>
scan matsum <file> and add info about added mass and energies to property summary
-binout <files>
scan binout <files> for matsum info
(similar to "-matsum" - but based on binary database)
-nullmass add listing of parts with no elements
-xnumint check NUMINT vs NIP consistency (for IP failure)
-xtable check table abscissa consistency
-contact overview contact definitions (typ, label, size, etc)
-cfac overview contact (extented output)
-g <d3plot>
name of plotfile (needed for psum)
(default: d3plot)
-XML output in XML-format
-a4fil <file> create Animator4 session file for PIDs with name labels (default: a4pid.ses)
-a4pid <options>

define values that should be displayed for PID in Animator4 (default: plab=PID label)

options: plab, mlab, eform, s-thickness, nip, mtype, hgtype, contact-thickness

eg: -a4pid p,m,s,mt  (+PID label, MAT-title, thickness, Mat-typ)

-a4sort sort properties in a4-session file (default: same order as d3hsp)
-keyfil <file> create LS-DYNA keyword file for selected options from d3hsp (default: check-hsp.key)
-keyopt <opts>

select options for output in keyword format

options: nrb, joint

-quiet suppress any screen output
-h[elp] print this help
-v[ersion] version info
