nodal_total_component_strain

PostProcessing.nodal_total_component_strain(component)

Total nodal component strain

Includes elastic, plastic, and creep strain.

Equilvanent MAPDL commands:

  • *VGET, PARM, NODE, , EPTO, X

Parameters
componentstr, optional

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

Returns
numpy.ndarray

Array containing the total nodal component strain.

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

Total component strain in the X direction for the first result

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