About Hydrodyn output format

Postby HongBhin.Kim » Sat Aug 15, 2020 4:13 am

---------------------- OUTPUT --------------------------------------------------
True HDSum - Output a summary file [flag]
False OutAll - Output all user-specified member and joint loads (only at each member end, not interior locations) [flag]
2 OutSwtch - Output requested channels to: [1=Hydrodyn.out, 2=GlueCode.out, 3=both files]
"ES11.4e2" OutFmt - Output format for numerical results (quoted string) [not checked for validity!]
"A11" OutSFmt - Output format for header strings (quoted string) [not checked for validity!]
I have fast version 8.16.0. And running this program, I wanted to see numerical results about floating platform so I changed word 'False' to True but Computer said That is under on developing. So What I want to say, Is this function(numerical results) not available?
Thank you for reading it.

Dear HongBhin.Kim,

The OutAll option of HydroDyn has never been implemented, hence the error. For now, you can select which HydroDyn-level outputs you want through by specifying them in the Output Channels section of the HydroDyn input file.
