LIGGGHTS and STL Transient Conversion Routine

liggghtsDo you have LIGGGHTS data that you’d like to visualize, analyze, or communicate? Do you have similar DEM (Discrete Element Model) type of data? EnSight can used easily to analyze, visualize, and communicate the results from a LIGGGHTS solution. In this particular situation, the user has both LIGGGHTS dataset for each timestep, along with STL data for each timestep which represents the moving geometry. This python routine converts both the LIGGGHTS data file as well as the STL data into EnSight format, allowing you to visualize both the moving geometry and particles at the same time, but also utilize the analysis capabilities within EnSight to quantify the discrete particle solution for such things as mass, center of gravity, particles & mass within a particular geometric region, amount of particles leaving the domain vs. time, etc.
