optiSLang (Adv. Optimization)



The Extraction Tool Kit allows you a simple and convenient extraction and processing of simulation results for an optimization or stochastic analysis.


An automated and batchable extraction of response variables and their processing to meaningful results is often associated with extensive programming. To minimize your time and effort in setting up a CAE process chain, Dynardo has developed the GUI-based Extraction Tool Kit (ETK). With ETK, you can easily extract any result values and continue to process them in optiSLang.

Current Version 2.2

  • added support for Abaqus 6.14
  • Abaqus: extended functionality to extract history output variables
  • added support for ANSYS 15
  • ANSYS: added suppport for the result extraction of modal analyses
  • added several additions and enhancements to calculator module

Customer Benefit

ETK has a GUI mode for result definition and it provides mathematical functions for the processing of scalar result variables, vectors or signals. To introduce the extracted result values into optiSLang, it is possible to generate all necessary files including ASCII output files and optiSLang XML task definition files. When ETK runs in the CAE process, a batch mode for automatic extractions is available.
