pmap

Mapdl.pmap(form='', discon='', **kwargs)

Creates mapping of the path geometry by defining path interpolation

APDL Command: PMAP division points.

Parameters
  • form

    Defines the mapping method:

    UNIFORM - Maps uniform divisions (specified on the nDiv argument of the PATH command)

    between specified points. This is the default.

    ACCURATE - Map geometry using a small division at the beginning and end of each segment.

    This gives you accurate derivatives, integrals, tangents, and normals for curves which do not have continuous slopes at the specified points. To create nonuniform divisions, the nDiv argument of the PATH command must be greater than 2.

  • discon – Sets mapping for discontinuities in the field. The divisions are modified to put a point just before and just after the discontinuity. The valid label is MAT, for a material discontinuity. No discontinuity is the default. Discontinuity mapping involves the NOAV option on the PDEF command.
