Yep I’m working as an intern on a seismic dynamic response of a test bench. Thing is part of the test bench is simulated on another program(Matlab but I’m not sure), I don’t know how exactly, but what I’m asked to do is build/program something that can simulate and return the displacement of the physical test bench to the simulated part that is on the other program.
For the copy/pasting, I am indeed writing some Python code that could automate that process.
Endgoal is to automate the entire process on Python, with calls to CCX and the other program, and eventually visualize it with something like Prepromax or CGX.
Normally, you have to provide the full input file definition (with all the necessary keywords) for new run. But there are exceptions. In some cases you could use the *Restart keyword and then you just have to define additional steps that you want to solve in addition to those completed in the previous run.
MatLab will let you automate a lot of stuff and the only problem is to make it work together with other software.
For postprocessing you could use ParaView. It’s very powerful and lets you study the results in lots of different ways but also automate the whole postprocessing using Python scripts.
