Calculates the flux passing through a closed contour.



FLUXV invokes an ANSYS macro which calculates the flux passing through a closed contour (path) predefined by PATH. The calculated flux is stored in the parameter FLUX. In a 2-D analysis, at least two nodes must be defined on the path. In 3-D, a path of nodes describing a closed contour must be specified (i.e., the first and last node in the path specification must be the same). A counterclockwise ordering of nodes on the PPATH command will give the correct sign on flux. Path operations are used for the calculations, and all path items are cleared upon completion. This macro is only available for vector potential formulations.
