nodal_component_stress

PostProcessing.nodal_component_stress(component)

Nodal component stress.

Equilvanent MAPDL commands:

  • VGET, PARM, NODE, , S, X

  • PRNSOL, S, COMP

Parameters
componentstr, optional

Nodal component stress component to retrieve. Must be 'X', 'Y', 'Z', 'XY', 'YZ', or 'XZ'.

Returns
numpy.ndarray

Numpy array containing the nodal component stress for the selected component.

Notes

This command always returns all nodal rotations regardless of if the nodes are selected or not. Use the selected_nodes mask to get the currently selected nodes.

Examples

Nodal stress in the X direction for the first result

>>> mapdl.post1()
>>> mapdl.set(1, 1)
>>> mapdl.post_processing.nodal_component_stress('X')
    array([0.60024621, 0.61625265, 0.65081825, ...,
           0.        , 0.        , 0.        ])

Corresponding nodes

>>> mapdl.mesh.nnum_all
array([   1,    2,    3, ..., 7215, 7216, 7217], dtype=int32)
Return type

ndarray
