- Mapdl.pbf(item='', key='', **kwargs)¶
Shows magnitude of body force loads on displays.
APDL Command: /PBF
Label identifying the item:
TEMP - Applied temperatures.
FLUE - Applied fluences.
HGEN - Applied heat generation rates.
JS - Applied current density magnitude.
JSX - X-component of current density.
JSY - Y-component of current density.
JSZ - Z-component of current density.
PHASE - Phase angle of applied load.
MVDI - Applied magnetic virtual displacements flag.
CHRGD - Applied electric charge density.
VLTG - Applied voltage drop.
0 - Do not show body force load contours.
1 - Show body force load contours.
2 - Show current density as a vector (not a contour).
Shows body force loads as contours on displays for the selected elements.
The effects of the
mapdl.pbfcommand are not cumulative (that is, the command does not modify an existing setting from a previously issued
mapdl.pbfcommand). If you issue multiple
mapdl.pbfcommands during an analysis, only the setting specified by the most recent
mapdl.pbf('STAT')to display settings. Use
mapdl.pbf('DEFA')to reset all specifications back to default. See also the
mapdl.pbccommand for other display contours.
Portions of this command are not supported by PowerGraphics [
This command is valid in any processor.
Activate display of body loads of structural temperature on subsequent plots by showing body force and contours.
