suvect

Mapdl.suvect(rsetname='', lab1='', oper='', lab2='', offset='', **kwargs)

Create new result data by operating on two existing result vectors on a

APDL Command: SUVECT given surface.

Parameters
rsetname

Eight character name of the result data output. There will be one or three RSetName values depending on the operation specified in Oper.

lab1

Eight character name of the mapped data that forms vector 1. Specified sets must exist on all selected surfaces for this operation to take place. The names NORM and GC will be reserved for normals and for global (x, y, z).

oper

DOT

DOT - Computes dot product between lab1 and lab2 vectors. The result is a scalar

parameter (RSetName) and each value within the set can be modified (incremented) via Offset.

CROSS - Computes cross product between lab1 and lab2 vectors. Each X, Y, Z value in the

result can be modified (incremented) via Offset.

SMULT - Scales (lab1x, lab1y, lab1z) vector by scalar lab2. Each X,Y,Z value in the

result can be modified (incremented) via Offset.

lab2

Eight character name of the mapped data that forms vector 2. Sets with names Lab2X, Lab2Y, and Lab2Z must exist on all selected surfaces for operation to take place. For Oper = SMULT a scalar value or another predefined scalar item (e.g., DA) can be supplied.

offset

An offset value to be applied to the resultant RSetName. One value is specified for Oper = DOT, and three values are specified for Oper = SMULT.
