nodal_thermal_component_strain

PostProcessing.nodal_thermal_component_strain(component)

Thermal nodal component strain

Equivalent MAPDL command:

  • PRNSOL, EPTH, PRIN

Parameters
componentstr, optional

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

Returns
numpy.ndarray

Numpy array containing the thermal nodal component strain for the specified 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

Thermal component strain in the X direction for the first result.

>>> mapdl.post1()
>>> mapdl.set(1, 1)
>>> mapdl.post_processing.nodal_thermal_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
