trpoin

Mapdl.trpoin(x='', y='', z='', vx='', vy='', vz='', chrg='', mass='', **kwargs)

Defines a point through which a particle flow or charged particle trace

APDL Command: TRPOIN will travel.

Parameters
  • x – Coordinate location of the trace point (in the active coordinate system). If X = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).

  • y – Coordinate location of the trace point (in the active coordinate system). If X = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).

  • z – Coordinate location of the trace point (in the active coordinate system). If X = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).

  • vx – Particle velocities in the X, Y and Z directions (in the active coordinate system).

  • vy – Particle velocities in the X, Y and Z directions (in the active coordinate system).

  • vz – Particle velocities in the X, Y and Z directions (in the active coordinate system).

  • chrg – Particle charge.

  • mass – Particle mass.

Notes

Defines a point through which a particle flow or charged particle trace [PLTRAC] will travel. Multiple points (50 maximum) may be defined which will result in multiple flow traces. Use TRPLIS to list the currently defined trace points and TRPDEL to delete trace points.

The VX, VY, VZ, CHRG, and MASS arguments only apply to charged particles.
