anmres

Mapdl.anmres(delay='', min_='', max_='', inc='', autocntrky='', freq='', ext='', **kwargs)

Performs animation of results over multiple results files in an

APDL Command: ANMRES explicit dynamic structural analysis or fluid flow analysis with remeshing.

Parameters
  • delay – Time delay during animation (default = 0.5 seconds).

  • min_ – Minimum results file number to animate. Default = 1 (for Jobname.RS01).

  • max_ – Maximum results file number to animate. Defaults to the highest numbered results file, Jobname.RSnn.

  • inc – Increment between results file numbers. Default = 1.

  • autocntrky

    Automatic contour scaling option.

    0 - No auto-scaling (default).

    1 - Auto-scaling on.

  • freq

    Results frequency key.

    0 or 1 - Animate every results set in each Jobname.EXT file (default).

    2 - Animate every other results set in each Jobname.EXT file.

    n - Animate every nth results set in each Jobname.EXT file.

  • ext

    Extension of result files

    ’rfl’ - Animate Jobname.rflnn

    ’rs’ - Animate Jobname.rsnn. Default = ‘rs’.

Notes

ANMRES invokes an ANSYS macro that performs animation across multiple results files (Jobname.EXT, Jobname.EXT, etc.) produced by an explicit dynamic structural analysis or fluid flow analysis with remeshing. Multiple results files typically occur when adaptive meshing is used in an explicit dynamic structural analysis or fluid flow analysis with remeshing. Each results file must have more than one set of results. ANMRES cannot be used for multiple results files that are caused by file splitting.

ANMRES animates results from files having the currently specified jobname (Jobname.EXT - Jobname.EXT). To change the current jobname, use the /FILNAME command. The animation is based on the last plot command (e.g., PLDISP).
