Hi,
How to get values in *.bas file from this kind of field:
QUESTION: field_name:(...,optional_value_i,...)
VALUE: #N# number_of_values ... value_number ... ?
Can you send me example ?
I created this control in material module as:
QUESTION: Discrete_points(Espilon,Sigma)
VALUE: #N# 2 0.0 000
I tried get value from 1th column like below:
*MatProp(Discrete_points) - this work, but it return number of matrix
elements (not all matrix)
*MatProp(Discrete_points(0)) or *MatProp(Discrete_points(Espilon)) not
work.
Regards
Michał Petaś

You can write the values by rows for example with this code (with the index after a comma):
*for(i=1;i=N;i=i+2)
*Matprop(Discrete_points,*i) *Matprop(Discrete_points,*operation(i+1))
*end for
We added more information and an example to the 'customization manual' for next beta versions.

[GiDlist] format question to plot data (post-process)
Dear Gid-users,
I am new to GID, so I apologies if this question is not an appropriate one.
I am interested to use GID as a post-processor to plot figures and videos.
So far I am using a Tecplot ASCII file that I import using
"Files-import-TECPLOT ASCII file", after having hit the toggle between
pre and post-process.
A small example of the kind of file I use is attached.
Context:
I use to plot figures and videos with Matlab.
Because this process was very much time consuming (especially for videos
and large number of particles) I am keen to switch to GID.
Now I fear that the problem may come from the format of the file I am using
(ASCII) rather than the software.
Question:
Is there any format (VTK + binary?) that I can use to print my data that
will ensure me the best post-process performanace in GID?
Thank you for your time in answering my question.
Cheers,
Rachel.

[GiDlist] format question to plot data (post-process)
Hi Rachel,
What is the problem using TECPLOT ASCII files with GiD? Probably will be much faster than using Matlab not?
It is possible to import also VTK result files,as you pointed (Files-Import-Vtk...) (In postprocess of GiD, not in preprocess Files-Import-Vtk voxels!!)
but I am not sure if it will be faster than using TECPLOT ASCII format.
You can also directly write our 'GiD postprocess' format, using our 'gidpost library', linked in your C/C++ or FORTRAN program (http://www.gidhome.com/gid-plus/tools/gidpost)
these files will be smaller written in compressed binary format, and faster to be read (and GiD results cache could be activated to read huge result files without store the whole file in memory)
Note: set this settings, if possible, for the best graphical GiD performance:
Utilities-Preferences... - Graphical
"Fast visualization mode"
Unset "Selection lines by software"
and set drawing method to "Vertex buffer objects"
Set also "use textures for contour fills"

[GiDlist] non-standard number of gauss points
Hi all,
the software I'm working with uses 6 noded triangular elements with an odd
number of integration points (i.e. either 4 or 6). GiD seems not to be able
to take this into account; is there a way to teach GiD to consider that
number of gauss points with their position?
Regards,
N.

[GiDlist] non-standard number of gauss points
6-nodes quadratic triangles are useful in GiD, and for this element our default number of gauss point is also 6 (then we can extrapolate results from gauss points to nodes using the element shape funcions, solving a 6x6 linear equation system)
For other number of gauss points, e.g. 4 we can't extrapolate results to nodes, and some features become unavailable, and we represent the results as spheres located on the described gauss points location.
See GiD help on GiD Customization-POSTPROCESS DATA FILES-Postprocess results format: ProjectName.post.res-Gauss Points
to know how are defined our 'internal' gauss points. If your solver uses a different location, you must describe it in the definition of gauss points of your results file.
Although your solver uses other gauss points, for results visualization pourposes you can write the results file using our internal definition, or also using a different number of gauss points, or better avoiding gauss points results and writting the resuls as nodal ones (averaging the nodal result to have a continuous field)

[GiDlist] non-standard number of gauss points
Hi Enrique,
thanks for your reply.
I'm not sure I understood well. If I have results at, say, 7 or 4 gauss
points, will I be able, following directions of the Customization manual,
to visualize results as continuous fields over elements (or over the whole
domain using the "smooth" results option)?
Thanks again,
N.

[GiDlist] non-standard number of gauss points
No, with 7 or 4 gauss points on a guadratic (6 nodes) triangle, you will see the result as 'coloured spheres' on your gauss point locations,
and some options, like smooth contour fill won't be available, because there is not implemented the extrapolation from results on your gauss points to the element nodes.
We usually use the 'shape functions' of the element to do this extrapolation to nodes: this require the same amount of nodes that gauss points (to have the same number of equations that unknowns).
Also the trivial case of 1 gauss point is implemented, then the constant result is extrapolated to nodes without need to solve any linear system equations.
We have not implemented a more general extrapolation mode, for a generic amount of gauss points in arbitrary locations.
But as I've explained, you can do you own extrapolation from your calculated gauss points, to our 'internal' gauss points (6 gauss points for the quatratic triangle), or better write as a 'nodal result' instead of a elemental gauss-point result, averaging as you want the results on nodes belonging to several triangles.

to know how are defined our 'internal' gauss points. If your solver uses a different location, you must describe it in the definition of gauss points of your results file.
Although your solver uses other gauss points, for results visualization pourposes you can write the results file using our internal definition, or also using a different number of gauss points, or better avoiding gauss points results and writting the resuls as nodal ones (averaging the nodal result to have a continuous field)

Subject: [GiDlist] non-standard number of gauss points
Hi all,
the software I'm working with uses 6 noded triangular elements with an odd number of integration points (i.e. either 4 or 6). GiD seems not to be able to take this into account; is there a way to teach GiD to consider that number of gauss points with their position?
Regards,
N.

and some options, like smooth contour fill won't be available, because there is not implemented the extrapolation from results on your gauss points to the element nodes.
We usually use the 'shape functions' of the element to do this extrapolation to nodes: this require the same amount of nodes that gauss points (to have the same number of equations that unknowns).
Also the trivial case of 1 gauss point is implemented, then the constant result is extrapolated to nodes without need to solve any linear system equations.
We have not implemented a more general extrapolation mode, for a generic amount of gauss points in arbitrary locations.
But as I've explained, you can do you own extrapolation from your calculated gauss points, to our 'internal' gauss points (6 gauss points for the quatratic triangle), or better write as a 'nodal result' instead of a elemental gauss-point result, averaging as you want the results on nodes belonging to several triangles.

Hi Enrique,
thanks for your reply.
I'm not sure I understood well. If I have results at, say, 7 or 4 gauss points, will I be able, following directions of the Customization manual, to visualize results as continuous fields over elements (or over the whole domain using the "smooth" results option)?
Thanks again,
N.

6-nodes quadratic triangles are useful in GiD, and for this element our default number of gauss point is also 6 (then we can extrapolate results from gauss points to nodes using the element shape funcions, solving a 6x6 linear equation system)
For other number of gauss points, e.g. 4 we can't extrapolate results to nodes, and some features become unavailable, and we represent the results as spheres located on the described gauss points location.
