Paraview for Strength Analysis results postprocessing


In general, I work on Strength analysis(Non-Linear static and Linear static) and wanted to use Paraview as a postprocessing tool.

But one surprising thing I noticed with Paraview is , it doesn’t support Higher(2nd) order elements.

My question is, Can Paraview be used as an efficient postprocessor tool for Higher order Stress analysis results postprocessing or it can be only used for CFD results postprocessing?

Thanks in advance.

ParaView supports second order elements in general. They may not be supported by some special filters. What do you want to do in ParaView ?

I want to use Paraview as a postprocessing tool for MSC Marc results…
MSC Marc results file format is *.t16.
