View Full Version : Explicit restart files
I want to minimise my file output from Explicit analyses. Is there a way of suppressing the generation of restart files (pac, res, etc) in Abaqus/Explicit? I tried commenting out the *RESTART keyword to no avail.
I don't know if you can totally supress the generation of the restart file when using Explicit. I have 2 suggestions that might be useful:
- Reduce the number of times that ABAQUS writes to the restart file using the NUMBER INTERVAL parameter to *Restart
- You can have abaqus automatically remove the unwanted files once your run has completed by adding the variable onJobCompletion to the abaqus environment file. The onJobCompletion variable can instruct abaqus to run any arbitrary commands.
I can confirm that you cannot totally suppress the generation of restart files in Explicit.
