SimAcademy Webinar Archive: MSC Nastran HDF5 Data Model and API

This is the second of 2 sessions on HDF5, and intended for those interested in the programmatic interface to read HDF5 data. HDF5 files can be read with multiple programming languages. The first half of this session will cover the data model. This is important no matter which programming language is used. In the second half, Python examples will be used to show how to efficiently access HDF5 data.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Getting Started with MSC Nastran HDF5

HDF5 was introduced in MSC Nastran 2016 (enhanced in 2017 and 2018). HDF5 is an open data model for storing and managing heterogeneous data. The database organizes MSC Nastran input and output data in a hierarchical structure. Its open format and access via multiple programming languages make it ideal for FEA applications. HDF5 has important advantages: faster access and plot generation, and is easily accessed for downstream calculations. A single file can store all results, replacing use of multiple files (XDB, OP2, Master/Dball, and punch files).
