lsengine

Mapdl.lsengine(type_='', enginename='', matrix='', option='', **kwargs)

Creates a linear solver engine.

APDL Command: *LSENGINE

Parameters
type_

Specifies the algorithm to be used:

  • "BCS" - Boeing sparse solver (default if applied to

    sparse matrices).

  • "DSS"MKL sparse linear solver (Intel Windows and

    Linux systems only).

  • "LAPACK"LAPACK dense matrix linear solver (default if

    applied to dense matrices).

  • "DSP" : Distributed sparse solver.

enginename

Name used to identify this engine. Must be specified.

matrix

Name of the matrix to solve.

option

Option to control the memory mode of the DSS solver (used only if type='dss'):

  • "INCORE" : In-core memory mode

  • "OUTOFCORE" : Out-of-core memory mode

Notes

This command creates a linear solver engine.

The BCS, DSS, and DSP solvers can only be used with sparse matrices. For dense matrices, use the LAPACK solver.
