So, as a way to get ANSYS Mechanical users out there started down the road of loving APDL commands, we got together and came up with a. Directly type in the commands into a text file from scratch. This assumes a good knowledge of the ANSYS command language and the associated options.

ANSYS Commands Manual Topic Index

AGEN – Generates additional areas from a pattern of areas. GRPH for improved performance with plotters. SAVE – Saves all current database information. CNTR – Redirects contact pair output quantities to a text file.

IMPD – Calculates the impedance of a conductor at a reference plane. SSLN – Selects and displays small lines in the model. LIST – Lists out the sets in the results file.

VA – Generates a volume bounded by existing areas. KSUM – Calculates and prints geometry statistics of the selected keypoints.

LSBV – Subtracts volumes from lines. RSYS – Activates a coordinate system for printout or display of element and nodal results.

FK – Defines force loads at keypoints. KBC – Specifies ramped or stepped loading within a load step. ASLV – Selects those areas contained in the selected volumes. REAL – Sets the element real constant set attribute pointer.

HFSYM – Indicates the presence of symmetry planes for the computation of acoustic fields in the near and far field domains beyond the finite element region.

BFE – Defines an element body force load.

Mechanical APDL Command Reference

NKPT – Defines a node at an existing keypoint location. SV – Defines spectrum values to be associated with frequency points. POLY – Creates a polygonal area based on working plane coordinate pairs. Right now you need these commands. PATH – Defines a path name and establishes parameters for the path.

A;dl you may want to write out specific information, say list the stresses for all the currently selected nodes, to aldl file. VA – Generates a volume bounded by existing areas. QUOT – Divides two variables. SSUM – Calculates and prints the sum of element table items.

POLY – Creates a polygonal area based on working plane coordinate pairs. LSBL – Subtracts lines from lines. In ANSYS Mechanical, when you specify a load or a boundary condition as normal or tangent to a surface, the program actually rotates all of those nodes so a degree of ccommand is normal to that surface. It also has control logic, functions and other capabilities that you find in most scripting languages. The F command is the same as the D command, except it defines forces instead of displacement.

FTYPE – Specifies the file type and pressure type for the subsequent import of source points and pressures. VSLA – Selects those volumes containing the selected areas. EDMP – Defines material properties for an explicit dynamics analysis. ESLA – Selects those elements associated with the selected areas.

FSUM – Sums the nodal force and moment contributions of elements. LSEL – Selects apdo subset of lines. EDSP – Specifies small penetration checking for contact entities in an explicit dynamic analysis.

CBTE – Specifies a thermal expansion coefficient for a composite beam section. ANFLOW – Produces an animated sequence of particle flow in a flowing fluid or a charged particle traveling in an electric or magnetic field. K Commands K – Defines a keypoint. EDCTS – Specifies clmmand scaling and scale factor of computed time step for an explicit dynamics analysis.

Any named selection you create for geometry in ANSYS Mechanical gets turned into a nodal component — all of the nodes that touch the geometry in the Named Selection get thrown into the component. Mapping Processor Commands 2. CYL5 – Creates a circular area or cylindrical volume by end points. You refer ansyd entities by their ID number.

PLMC – Plots the modal coordinates from a mode-superposition solution.
