Any interaction with OnScale is done through input and output files. These different file types provide flexibility in setup, execution, monitoring and post-processing. These files can be used as inputs to the code and for storing code output. The OnScale work-spaces all use a variety of different file types.
Used in OnScales Analyst mode and serves as an input to the code here output files can be requested by the user in the code.
|OnScale Model Files (Text)|
|Job||.flxinp||Contains commands in batch format that create a job||Yes||Yes|
|Review||.revinp||Information about snapshot and time history or other x-y data files||Yes||Yes|
|Build||.bldinp||This file provides all the nodal coordinates for the skewed partition||Yes||Yes|
|Command log||.flxprt||Record of all operations performed by the solvers||Yes||Yes|
|Warning||.flxwrn||Record of all warnings flagged during the run process||Yes||Yes|
Model information and snapshots of field variable arrays can be saved as various output files for future post-processing/plotting. These files are used and loaded into OnScales post-processor mode.
|OnScale Binary Data (Text)|
|Result||.flxdato||Contains data arrays for input/output and use in Flex models||Yes||Yes|
|Time History||.flxhst||Time vs data field records||Yes||Yes|
|Model||.flxmdl||Contains material and geometry information||Yes||Yes|
|Extrapolation||.flxext||Stores time histories at extrapolation boundary||Yes||Yes|
|Free Field||.flxffl||Stores Free Field (FFLD) information at FFLD regions||Yes||Yes|

These file types are used in the OnScale Designer workspace.
|Project Data (JSON)|
|Project||.jfp||projects are contained within these files (requires other files to use)||Yes||Yes|

These file types can be imported into Designer projects.
|STEP||.step / .stp||projects are contained within these files (requires other files to use)||Yes||No|
Geometry can be imported in NASTRAN BDF format
|NASTRAN Bulk Data||.nas / .bdf / .nastran||Necessary for designer projects .bdf can be used as a work around to STEP files created with wrong units||Yes||Yes|
