Recorder in OSpy seems to cut off last line in output file

Post by ajmakdisi » Fri May 15, 2020 4:05 pm

I am running an non-linear dynamic analysis of a soil column (consisting of 160 quad elements and 322 nodes). I have been playing around a little bit with whether or not it's easier/faster to use the recorder command to generate output files of nodal responses, or to use the "nodeDisp" command for every node at every time step.

In doing so, I found that when using recorders in OpenSeesPy, the output files are not completely written. The last line is getting cut off about a third of the way through, making it impossible to read into an array without truncating the last line. Does this issue sound familiar to anyone?

You can try adding ops.wipe() at the end of your analysis. This will flush all the recorders and force them to write and close their files.
