Automatic creation .h3d file from cluster runs

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I have an issue when I run a RADIOSS .rad file on my local group's cluster. At the end of the analysis, It doesn't automatically extract the .h3d file, although It does so locally on my pc. I have all animations A0*, but I'd rather It extracts h3d automatically instead of doing manually with hvtrans. I use Radioss Block 120,

Many Thanks

On your cluster you must have the HW desktop package installed and launch the Radioss simulation using the <install direct>/altair/scripts/radioss to automatically get the h3d file.


If Radioss is launched directly using the executable then you must run hvtrans on the A001 files after the Radioss simulation is done.  Running hvtrans could be after the job submission can be added to the submit script.


This can be done using the command,

altair/scripts/hvtrans -a *A001 *A001  -o model.h3d
