target

Mapdl.target(nlist='', **kwargs)

Specifies the target nodes for mapping pressures onto surface effect

APDL Command: TARGET elements.

Parameters

nlist – Nodes defining the surface upon which the pressures will be mapped. Use the label ALL or specify a nodal component name. If ALL, all selected nodes [NSEL] are used (default). Individual nodes may not be entered.

The node list specified by Nlist must contain a sufficient number of nodes to define an element surface. The surface must be meshed (ESURF command) with SURF154 elements prior to issuing this command.
