ly

Query.ly(n, lfrac)

Y-coordinate of line n at length fraction lfrac.

Fetches Y-coordinate of line n at lfrac times the line length along the line. 0. <= lfrac <= 1..

Parameters
nint

The line number of the line to be considered.

lfrac: float

The fraction of the length of the line along which to enquire. 0. <= lfrac <= 1.

Returns
float

The Y-coordinate.

Examples

Here we construct a line between the coordinates (0, 0, 0) and (1, 2, 3) then find the Y-coordinate halfway along the line.

>>> from ansys.mapdl.core import launch_mapdl
>>> mapdl = launch_mapdl()
>>> mapdl.prep7()
>>> k0 = mapdl.k(1, 0, 0, 0)
>>> k1 = mapdl.k(2, 1, 2, 3)
>>> l0 = mapdl.l(k0, k1)
>>> q = mapdl.queries
>>> q.ly(l0, 0.5)
1.0
