lcsel

Mapdl.lcsel(type_='', lcmin='', lcmax='', lcinc='', **kwargs)

Selects a subset of load cases.

APDL Command: LCSEL

Parameters
  • type_

    Label identifying the type of select:

    S - Select a new set.

    R - Reselect a set from the current set.

    A - Additionally select a set and extend the current set.

    U - Unselect a set from the current set.

    ALL - Restore the full set.

    NONE - Unselect the full set.

    INVE - Invert the current set (selected becomes unselected and vice versa).

    STAT - Display the current select status.

  • lcmin – Minimum value of load case pointer range.

  • lcmax – Maximum value of load case pointer range. LCMAX defaults to LCMIN.

  • lcinc – Value increment within range. Defaults to 1. LCINC cannot be negative.

Notes

Selects a subset of load cases for other operations. For example, to select a new set of load cases based on load cases 1 through 7, use LCSEL,S,1,7. The subset is used when the ALL label is entered (or implied) on other commands, such as LCFACT, LCABS, LCOPER, etc. Load cases are flagged as selected and unselected; no load case pointers [LCDEF, LCWRITE, LCFILE] are actually deleted from the database.
