Interface function with SAMCEF FEM code.


  Up=samcef('read model.u18')
  Up=samcef('read model.u18','buildup')
  Up=samcef('read model.bdf','buildup')
  samcef('write FileName',model)



The read command import : models from .dat files, results from .u18 file. With the 'buildup' argument, the .u11 and .u12 files are also read to import element matrices into a superelement. Additional DOFs linked to reduced shear formulations are properly condensed. Note that to export a standardized form of the model, you should use the .SAUV BANQUE "FileName.dat" command in SAMCEF.

When reading a .u18 file, it may be necessary to import the properties from the model to clarify which DOFs are actually used in the model. You should thus have a .data file with the same root name in the same directory. Modeshapes are stored in the model stack entry curve,record(12)_disp. Other imported results are also stored in the stack.


Basic writing is supported with samcef('write FileName',model). Please send requests to extend these capabilities.


This command lists conversion tables for elements, topologies, facetopologies. You can redefine (enhance) these tables by setting preferences of the form setpref( 'FEMLink', 'samcef.list', value), but please also request enhancements so that the quality of our translators is improved.
