plcint

Mapdl.plcint(action='', id_='', node='', cont='', dtype='', **kwargs)

Plots the fracture parameter (CINT) result data.

APDL Command: PLCINT

Parameters
  • action

    PATH

    PATH - Plots CINT quantities according to path number (default).

    FRONT - Plots CINT quantities distribution along the crack front.

  • id_ – Crack ID number.

  • node – Crack tip node number (default = ALL).

  • cont – Contour number (Default = ALL).

  • dtype

    Data type to output:

    JINT - J-integral (default)

    IIN1 - Interaction integral 1

    IIN2 - Interaction integral 2

    IIN3 - Interaction integral 3

    K1 - Mode 1 stress-intensity factor

    K2 - Mode 2 stress-intensity factor

    K3 - Mode 3 stress-intensity factor

    G1 - Mode 1 energy release rate

    G2 - Mode 2 energy release rate

    G3 - Mode 3 energy release rate

    GT - Total energy release rate

    MFTX - Total material force X

    MFTY - Total material force Y

    MFTZ - Total material force Z

    TSTRESS - T-stress

    CEXT - Crack extension

    CSTAR - C*-integral

Notes

The PLCINT command is not available for XFEM-based crack growth analyses results processing.
