Keyword type: step
This procedure is used to generate a substructure and store the stiffness matrix using the *SUBSTRUCTURE MATRIX OUTPUT keyword card. No loading should be applied.
There is one optional parameter: SOLVER. It determines the package used to solve the ensuing system of equations. The following solvers can be selected:
Default is the first solver which has been installed of the following list: PARDISO, SPOOLES. If none is installed, a substructure generation is not possible.
Example: *SUBSTRUCTURE GENERATE,SOLVER=PARDISO
defines a substructure generation step and selects the PARDISO solver as linear equation solver in the step. For this to work, the PARDISO solver must have been linked with CalculiX.
