spoint

Mapdl.spoint(node='', x='', y='', z='', **kwargs)

Defines a point for moment summations.

APDL Command: SPOINT

Parameters
  • node – Node number of the desired point. If zero, use X,Y,Z to describe point.

  • x – Global Cartesian coordinates of the desired summation point. Used if NODE is 0. Defaults to (0,0,0).

  • y – Global Cartesian coordinates of the desired summation point. Used if NODE is 0. Defaults to (0,0,0).

  • z – Global Cartesian coordinates of the desired summation point. Used if NODE is 0. Defaults to (0,0,0).

Notes

Defines a point (any point other than the origin) about which the tabular moment summations are computed [NFORCE, FSUM]. If force summations are desired in other than the global Cartesian directions, a node number must be specified on the NODE field, and the desired coordinate system must be activated with RSYS.
