dot

Mapdl.dot(vector1='', vector2='', par_real='', par_imag='', **kwargs)

Computes the dot (or inner) product of two vectors.

APDL Command: *DOT

Parameters
vector1

Name of first vector; must have been previously specified by a *VEC command.

vector2

Name of second vector; must have been previously specified by a *VEC command.

par_real

Parameter name that contains the result.

par_imag

Parameter name that contains the imaginary part of the result (used only for complex vectors).

Notes

If Vector1 and Vector2 are complex, the complex conjugate of Vector1 is used to compute the result (Par_Real, Par_Imag).
