23. Post processing using PATRAN

Q23.1 : Is it possible to use PATRAN for post processing even if it was not used for pre-processing ie not used to generate the mesh?

Yes. Create a new database using the abaqus.db template. Click on the radio button marked Analysis and change the `Action' from Analyse to Read Both. Default option is Read Results if you had used PATRAN to generate the mesh.
Then follow the instructions given in the Beginner's Guide to PATRAN.
