map_

Mapdl.map_(kdim='', kout='', limit='', **kwargs)

Maps pressures from source points to target surface elements.

APDL Command: MAP

kdim

Interpolation key:

  • "0 or 2" : Interpolation is done on a surface (default).

  • "3" : Interpolation is done within a volume. This option is useful if the supplied source data is volumetric field data rather than surface data.

kout

Key to control how pressure is applied when a target node is outside of the source region:

  • "0" : Use the pressure(s) of the nearest source point for target nodes outside of the region (default).

  • "1" : Set pressures outside of the region to zero.

limit

Number of nearby points considered for interpolation. The minimum is 5; the default is 20. Lower values reduce processing time. However, some distorted or irregular meshes will require a higher LIMIT value to find the points encompassing the target node in order to define the region for interpolation.
