Saving sideset on an edge in an ExodusII file

Postby dave.knez » Fri Oct 11, 2013 9:46 am

I would like to save a sideset on an edge in an ExodusII file. This doesn't seem to work for me at the moment though. Here's the journal file I tried to use:

Code: Select all
brick x 1 y 1 z 20
volume 1 size auto factor 6
volume 1 size auto factor 6
mesh volume 1

block 1 volume 1
sideset 1 surface 2
sideset 10 curve 3
nodeset 2 node 8

export mesh "beam.exo" dimension 3 block all sideset all nodeset all overwrite


When I import beam.exo into CUBIT, sideset 10 is lost. Is it possible to save this data, or is a "curve" sideset not supported in ExodusII?

Thanks,
David

I created the sideset on the curve, exported the model to Exodus II and then dumped the file to ASCII. I don't see a sideset in the file, so currently Exodus II doesn't support edge sidesets as a standard feature.

Here is a possible work around:

bri x 10
vol 1 int 2
mesh vol 1
block 1 vol 1
block 2 surf 1
sideset 1 curve 1

block 2 gets exported as shell stiffeners. I'm not sure what games you would have to play around with in the analysis code to have it ignore those elements.
