The Postprocessing Calculator

The postprocessing calculator can perform operations on output quantities written to the output database (job-name.odb) by Abaqus. It then expands the output database by writing these new output quantities to the output database. Once this expansion is done, it is not possible to convert the output database back to its original form. The postprocessing calculator is for use only with the Visualization module of Abaqus/CAE (Abaqus/Viewer).
