plnsol

Mapdl.plnsol(item='', comp='', kund='', fact='', fileid='', **kwargs)

Displays results as continuous contours.

APDL Command: PLNSOL

Parameters
item

Label identifying the item. Valid item labels are shown in Table 220: PLNSOL - Valid Item and Component Labels below. Some items also require a component label.

comp

Component of the item (if required). Valid component labels are shown in Table 220: PLNSOL - Valid Item and Component Labels below.

kund

Undisplaced shape key:

0 - Do not overlay undeformed structure display

1 - Overlay displaced contour plot with undeformed display (appearance is system-

dependent)

2 - Overlay displaced contour plot with undeformed edge display (appearance is

system-dependent)

fact

Scale factor for 2-D display for contact items. Default value is 1. A negative scaling factor may be used to invert the display.

fileid

The file index number (obtained via the NLDIAG,NRRE,ON command). Valid only for Item = NRRE.

Notes

Displays the solution results as continuous contours across element boundaries for the selected nodes and elements. For example, PLNSOL,S,X displays the X component of stress S (that is, the SX stress component). Various element results depend upon the recalculation method and the selected results location [AVPRIN, RSYS, LAYER, SHELL, and NSEL]. Contours are determined by linear interpolation within each element from the nodal values, which are averaged at a node whenever two or more elements connect to the same node (except for FMAG, which is summed at the node).

For PowerGraphics displays [/GRAPHICS,POWER], results are plotted only for the model exterior surface. The items marked with [2] are not supported by PowerGraphics. To plot midside nodes, you must first issue /EFACET,2.
