Output filesΒΆ

Currently Parmec supports the following output file formats:

  • For spherical particles:
    • LAMMPS *.dump files (experimental/under development); can be viewed with OVITO
  • For mesh based particles, for rigid bodies, for contact points, and for springs:

See also the OUTPUT command for details on outputted entities and file kinds.

Status (as of commit 5ab402d)

The *.dump file format is partially supported at this point: it can be used to view animated results for spheres, including some of the output entities. The *.vtk and *.xmf file formats are fairly complete and can be used to view motion of particles as well as time histories of all output fields and entities. The *.med file format currently supports only mesh data (it does not include output for rigid bodies, contact points, and springs).
