Wow, I didn't expect FreeCAD community to have already found this repository! Thanks for letting me know.
FrontISTR does not have sufficient English documentation, so I'm afraid it has confused FC members a bit.
As announced, the significance of this workbench is to run large scale analysis using all computational resources.
FrontISTR can run both iterative solvers such as preconditioned conjugate gradient method, which has good memory usage and scalability, and a direct solver, MUMPS*.
This gives users the freedom to choose the appropriate solver for your problem.
*The MUMPS solver is currently not available for windows due to a problem between MS-MPI and MUMPS. We're working hard to fix this problem.
Thanks for trying it out so quickly!
The stress plot with pipeline looks a little weird
How can I display stress with paraview?
It seems so. Thank you for letting me know. I checked stress results only by double-clicking FISTR_Result, so I may have missed the problem with pipeline view. I'll check it.
To display stress with paraview, you will need to manually edit the input file and run the solver again, as shown below.
1. Write input
2. Go to working directory and open .cnt file to edit
3. Replace !output_type=COMPLETE_AVS to !output_type=VTK
4. Run FrontISTR ( loading results will be fail. )
5. Open .pvtu files with paraview.
The solver installation as described in git seems not working for me (or I have not enough patience...)
When you first created solverFISTRtools, did you see the following screen? It appears if bin/fistr1.exe was not found.
After you click OK, the download will start in the background.
This is done by python urllib.request module, so something wrong might occur with it or maybe it simply took too much time.
