Large Size of Plot_Data_Elem file

I am getting very large Plot_Data_Eleme output file (20 GB). Is it normal? Is it possible to get this file only for certain time interval instead of all time steps?

  • No it is not normal to get Plot Data Elem file in  10-20GB size. The size actually depends on parameters used in your simulation file

    If you attach your file here, then i can take a look

    • SM Its difficult to exactly decode the reason from looking only at this  part of the file. 

      However, it seems you have a very large end time,  3.154E+97

      and you are writing at least 19 time instants to Plot_data_elem file. so i guess the reason lies elsewhere in your file.
