Mapdl.smin(labr='', lab1='', lab2='', fact1='', fact2='', **kwargs)

Forms an element table item from the minimum of two other items.

APDL Command: SMIN

Parameters
labr

Label assigned to results. If same as existing label, the existing values will be overwritten by these results.

lab1

First labeled result item in operation.

lab2

Second labeled result item in operation (may be blank).

fact1

Scale factor applied to Lab1. A (blank) or ‘0’ entry defaults to 1.0.

fact2

Scale factor applied to Lab2. A (blank) or ‘0’ entry defaults to 1.0.

Notes

Forms a labeled result item (see ETABLE command) for the selected elements by comparing two existing labeled result items according to the operation:

LabR = (FACT1 x Lab1) cmn (FACT2 x Lab2)

where “cmn” means “compare and save minimum.” If absolute values are requested [SABS,1], the absolute values of Lab1 and Lab2 are used.
