PHASTA is a computational fluid dynamics with a stabilized finite element method.

Data Format Support


ParaView has an experimental PHASTA file reader in CVS. It is not compiled in the official releases, so you must check out the CVS yourself and compile it. This can be done with the following commands:

$ cvs -d login
Logging in to
CVS password: <Press ENTER>
$ cvs -d co -D "2006-02-13 16:15" ParaView
  output truncated

This will check out a working version of ParaView from February 13, 2006, that has the Phasta reader included. Because ParaView only supports loading of single files and PHASTA separates output across multiple files, a metafile must be created. This is called the PHT file. The format of the PHT file can be found here.
