Post-computation are often needed to determine specific macro quantities. Homtools furnish scripts that operate on ODB files.

Compute spatial average of a nodal field

Computing average quantity for fields which are in the output database of an Abaqus Job (ODB) can be done with a simple command line. Homtools furnish a script that compute an average value of a nodal field for a given set of elements. The nodal field is simply interpolated at Gauss Points and integrated over elements.

Users just have to edit the file Field_Average.py and to modify the following lines with appropriate values:

elsetname=’ ALL ELEMENTS’
