Reducing the size of .f06 file in Nastran

Hi,

 

I wonder is there any way to reduce the size of output in .f06 file?

 

I have used:

ECHOOFF 

in executive control and case control

 

as well as

ECHO=NONE

to turn off bulk data echo.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks!!!

don't print any results to the .f06 if you don't need them

Do you know any command(s) that will achieve this? Thanks!

Re: Reducing the size of .f06 file in Nastran

Check the options on the output cards (STRESS, DISP etc) you are defining

PRINT = will "print" everyting to the .f06

PLOT = compute but does not "print" or punch the output

 

you default should be PLOT

 

Also once you have checked the AUTOSPC table in your debugging run(s) and you are happy with the model then there is not need to "print" the AUTOSPC table for any subsequent analysis
