Abstract: Analysis of the various transient quantities contained in an ALEGRA simulation, including material properties, scalar variables, and tensor variables, can be an arduous task. In particular, the extraction of specific time-dependent quantities traveling through an Eulerian mesh is time consuming. This report documents an automated method of extracting transient quantities that vary spatially from an ALEGRA simulation using a VisIt macro written in the Python programming language. Plots of data extracted using this method are presented.
