nodal_thermal_eqv_strain

PostProcessing.nodal_thermal_eqv_strain()

The thermal nodal equivalent strain of the current result.

Equivalent MAPDL command:

  • PRNSOL, EPTH, PRIN

Returns
numpy.ndarray

Numpy array containing the thermal nodal equivalent strain of the current result.

Notes

The nodal results are averaged across all selected elements. Not all nodes will contain valid results (e.g. midside nodes), and those nodes will report a zero value.

Elements that are not selected will not contribute to the averaged nodal values, and if a node’s attached elements are all unselected, the element will report a zero value.

Examples

Thermal quivalent strain for the current result.

>>> mapdl.post_processing.nodal_thermal_eqv_strain()
array([15488.84357602, 16434.95432337, 15683.2334295 , ...,
           0.        ,     0.        ,     0.        ])

Strain from result 2.

>>> mapdl.post1()
>>> mapdl.set(1, 2)
>>> mapdl.post_processing.nodal_thermal_eqv_strain()
array([15488.84357602, 16434.95432337, 15683.2334295 , ...,
           0.        ,     0.        ,     0.        ])
Return type
