SYNOPSIS

mbdyn [ -f input-file] [ -H ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -o output-file-prefix] [ -P ] [ -p ] [ -R ] [ -r ] [ -S sleep-time] [ -s ] [ -T ] [ -t ] [ -v ] [ -W new-working-dir] [ -w ] [ input-file [...]]

DESCRIPTION

mbdyn is a multibody analysis tool released under GPL <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html>. It solves initial value problems for multibody, multidisciplinary systems including, but not limited to, the mechanical and aeroservoelastic fields.

The most important and most widely used options are -f to pass the name of the input file, and -o to pass the name of the output file.

OPTIONS

-d, --debug <level[:level[...]]>
  Enable specific debug levels (only when compiled with --enable-debug).
-e, --exceptions
  Do not trap (some) exceptions, to ease debugging.
-f, --input-file <input-file>
  Read model and analysis data from file input-file; default is standard input. The current working directory is set to the path to input-file (see chdir(2) for details). As a consequence, any sub-file included using the include directive needs to be referred to either with the full path, or relative to the folder where input-file resides.
-H, --show-table
  Shows a list of the symbols defined in the symbol table of the mathematical parser, with their value.
-h, --help Displays usage information.
-l, --license
  Show licensing info.
-o, --output-file <output-file-prefix>
  Write results to files with prefix output-file-prefix (extensions are content-dependent); default is input-file, if any, or "MBDyn". If output-file-prefix is a directory, the output file will have the name of the input file, but it will be placed in that directory.
-P, --pedantic
  Issue pedantic warnings (more occurrences raise the level).
-p, --parallel
  Run in parallel mode (only if compiled with MPI).
-R, --no-redefine
  Do not allow symbols in the mathematical parser to be redefined.
-r, --redefine
  Allow symbols in the mathematical parser to be redefined; useful in conjunction with -t.
-S, --sleep [rank=<r>,]<sleep-time>
  Sleep sleep-time seconds before starting the simulation. When running in parallel, if sleep-time is prefixed by rank=<r>, only the process with rank r (0 to number of processes - 1) will sleep.
-s, --silent
  Reduce verbosity (more occurrences reduce the verbosity level further).
-T, --no-same-table
  Do not preserve the existing mathematical parser symbol table when running multiple analyses in the same run.
-t, --same-table
  Preserve the existing mathematical parser symbol table when running multiple analyses in the same run (e.g. by issuing multiple input files on the command line). It may require -r to allow redefinition of symbols.
-v, --version
  Show version and exit.
-W, --working-dir <new-working-dir>
  Use new-working-dir as working directory instead of the current one.
-w, --warranty
  Issue a "warranty" message.
