Nodal Results Block

Purpose: Stores values on node positions

1. Record:
Format:(1X,' 100','C',6A1,E12.5,I12,20A1,I2,I5,10A1,I2)
Values: KEY,CODE,SETNAME,VALUE,NUMNOD,TEXT,ICTYPE,NUMSTP,ANALYS,FORMAT
Where: KEY    = 100
       CODE   = C
       SETNAME= Name (not used)
       VALUE  = Could be frequency, time or any numerical value
       NUMNOD = Number of nodes in this nodal results block
       TEXT   = Any text
       ICTYPE = Analysis type
                0  static
                1  time step
                2  frequency
                3  load step
                4  user named
       NUMSTP = Step number
       ANALYS = Type of analysis (description)
       FORMAT = Format indicator
                0  short format
                1  long format 
                2  binary format 

2. Record:
Format:(1X,I2,2X,8A1,2I5)
Values: KEY, NAME, NCOMPS, IRTYPE
Where: KEY    = -4
       NAME   = Dataset name to be used in the menu
       NCOMPS = Number of entities
       IRTYPE = 1  Nodal data, material independent
                2  Nodal data, material dependant
                3  Element data at nodes (not used) 

3. Type of Record:
Format:(1X,I2,2X,8A1,5I5,8A1) 
Values: KEY, NAME, MENU, ICTYPE, ICIND1, ICIND2, IEXIST, ICNAME
Where: KEY    = -5
       NAME   = Entity name to be used in the menu for this comp.
       MENU   = 1
       ICTYPE = Type of entity
                1  scalar
                2  vector with 3 components
                4  matrix
               12  vector with 3 amplitudes and 3 phase-angles in degree
       ICIND1 = sub-component index or row number
       ICIND2 = column number for ICTYPE=4
       IEXIST = 0  data are provided
                1  data are to be calculated by predefined
                   functions (not used)
                2  as 0 but earmarked
       ICNAME = Name of the predefined calculation (not used)
                ALL  calculate the total displacement if ICTYPE=2
This record must be repeated for each entity.

4. Type of Record:  (not used)
This record will be necessary in combination with the request for 
predefined calculations. This type of record is not allowed in
combination with binary coding of data.
Format:(1X,I2,2I5,20I3) 
Values: KEY,IRECTY,NUMCPS,(LSTCPS(I),I=1,NUMCPS)
Where: KEY    = -6
       IRECTY = Record variant identification number
       NUMCPS = Number of components
       LSTCPS = For each variant component, the position of the
                corresponding component in the attribute definition


5. Type of Record:
The following records are data-records and the format is repeated for
each node.

In case of material independent data

- ascii coding:
Following records (ascci, FORMAT=0 | 1):
 Short Format:(1X,I2,I5,6E12.5)
 Long Format:(1X,I2,I10,6E12.5)
 Values: KEY, NODE, XX..
 Where: KEY    = -1 if its the first line of data for a given node or
                -2 if its a continuation line
       NODE   = node number or blank if KEY=-2
       XX..   = data

- binary coding:
 Following records (ascci, FORMAT=2):
 (int,NCOMPS*float)
 int and float are ansi-c data-types
 Values: NODE, XX..
 Where:
       NODE   = node number or blank if KEY=-2
       XX..   = data

In case of material dependant data
REMARK: Implemented only for NMATS=1
- first line:
Short Format:(1X,I2,4I5)
Long Format:(1X,I2,I10,3I5)
Values: KEY, NODENR, NMATS
Where: KEY    = -1
       NODENR = Node number
       NMATS  = Number of different materials at this node (unused)
- second and following lines:
Short Format:(1X,I2,I5,6E12.5)
Long Format:(1X,I2,I10,6E12.5)
Values: KEY, MAT, XX, YY, ZZ, XY, YZ, ZX ..
Where: KEY    = -2 
       MAT    = material-property-number if KEY=-2 (unused)
       XX..   = data

  
Last Record (only FORMAT=0 | 1 (ascii), omitted for FORMAT=2):
Format:(1X,'-3')
Values: KEY
