presol

Mapdl.presol(item='', comp='', **kwargs)

Prints the solution results for elements.

APDL Command: PRESOL

Parameters
item

Label identifying the item. Valid item labels are shown in Table 224: PRESOL - Valid Item and Component Labels for Element Results below. Some items also require a component label.

comp

Component of the item (if required). Valid component labels are shown in Table 224: PRESOL - Valid Item and Component Labels for Element Results below.

Notes

Prints the solution results for the selected elements in the sorted sequence. For example, PRESOL,S prints the stress items SX, SY, SZ, SXY, SYZ, and SXZ for the node locations of the element. Component results are in the global Cartesian coordinate directions unless transformed (RSYS).

Shell elements print values at the top, then bottom of the element (or layer). If KEYOPT(8) = 2 (for SHELL181, SHELL208, SHELL209, SHELL281, or ELBOW290), the results are printed in the order TOP, BOT and then MID of each element, (or layer). The MID value will be the actual value as written to the results file.

Items are listed as columns of a table versus element number. An exception occurs for item ELEM which uses an element format (all applicable line element results are listed per element) instead of a tabular format.

The FORCE command can be used to define which component of the nodal load is to be used (static, damping, inertia, or total). See the ETABLE and PRETAB commands for printing items not available through this command (such as line element results).

For PowerGraphics [/GRAPHICS,POWER], results are listed only for the element surface. The items marked with [1] are not supported by PowerGraphics.

Failure criteria for virgin material [1][2].

Default components: Maximum of all failure criteria defined at current location (MAX), maximum strain (EMAX), maximum stress (SMAX), Tsai-Wu Strength Index (TWSI), inverse of Tsai-Wu Strength Ratio Index (TWSR).

Other available components: Hashin Fiber Failure (HFIB), Hashin Matrix Failure (HMAT), Puck Fiber Failure (PFIB), Puck Matrix Failure (PMAT), LaRc03 Fiber Failure (L3FB), LaRc03 Matrix Failure (L3MT), LaRc04 Fiber Failure (L4FB), LaRc04 Matrix Failure (L4MT), and any user- defined failure criteria (USR1 through USR9) [4].

Issue the FCTYP command to activate or remove failure criteria.

Failure criteria based on the effective stresses in the damaged material.

Components: Maximum of all failure criteria defined at current location (MAX), fiber tensile failure (FT), fiber compressive failure (FC), matrix tensile failure (MT), and matrix compressive (MC).

Progressive damage parameters.

Components: Damage status (STAT, 0 - undamaged, 1 - damaged, 2 - complete damage), fiber tensile damage variable (FT), fiber compressive damage variable (FC), matrix tensile damage variable (MT), matrix compressive damage variable (MC), shear damage variable (S), energy dissipated per unit volume (SED), energy per unit volume due to viscous damping (SEDV).
