nodal_elastic_component_strain

PostProcessing.nodal_elastic_component_strain(component)

Elastic nodal component strain

Equivalent MAPDL command:

  • PRNSOL,EPEL,PRIN

Parameters
componentstr

Component to retrieve. Must be 'X', 'Y', 'Z', 'XY', 'YZ', or 'XZ'.

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

Elastic component strain in the X direction for the first result

>>> mapdl.post1()
>>> mapdl.set(1, 1)
>>> mapdl.post_processing.nodal_elastic_component_strain('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
