plmap

Mapdl.plmap(item='', nodekey='', imagkey='', **kwargs)

Plots target and source pressures.

APDL Command: PLMAP

Parameters
item

Items to plot:

BOTH - Plot both target and source pressures (default).

TARGET - Plot only the target pressures.

SOURCE - Plot only the source pressures.

nodekey

If the source data contains faces (that is, surface elements were created upon the READ command), set NODEkey = 1 to plot only the source nodes rather than both the nodes and the elements.

imagkey

1 - Plot the real pressures (default).

0 - Plot the imaginary pressures.

Notes

Pressures on the target faces are displayed as a color contour plot using the command /PSF,PRES,,3. If the source data contains faces (that is, surface elements were created upon the READ command), the source faces are also displayed using a color contour plot by default. If NODEkey = 1 or no source faces are available, the source pressures are displayed as colored node symbols (/PSYMB,DOT,1 command).
