read_exodus(filename, animate_mode_shapes=True, apply_displacements=True, displacement_magnitude=1.0, read_point_data=True, read_cell_data=True, enabled_sidesets=None)

Read an ExodusII file ('.e' or '.exo').


The path to the exodus file to read.

animate_mode_shapesbool, optional

When True then this reader will report a continuous time range [0,1] and animate the displacements in a periodic sinusoid.

apply_displacementsbool, optional

Geometric locations can include displacements. When True, the nodal positions are ‘displaced’ by the standard exodus displacement vector. If displacements are turned off, the user can explicitly add them by applying a warp filter.

displacement_magnitudebool, optional

This is a number between 0 and 1 that is used to scale the DisplacementMagnitude in a sinusoidal pattern.

read_point_databool, optional

Read in data associated with points. Default True.

read_cell_databool, optional

Read in data associated with cells. Default True.

enabled_sidesetsstr or int, optional

The name of the array that store the mapping from side set cells back to the global id of the elements they bound.
