- Mapdl.large(ir='', ia='', ib='', ic='', name='', facta='', factb='', factc='', **kwargs)¶
Finds the largest (the envelope) of three variables.
APDL Command: LARGE
Arbitrary reference number assigned to the resulting variable (2 to NV [NUMVAR]). If this number is the same as for a previously defined variable, the previously defined variable will be overwritten with this result.
- ia, ib, ic
Reference numbers of the three variables to be operated on. If only two, leave IC blank. If only one, leave IB blank also.
Thirty-two character name for identifying the variable on the printout and displays. Embedded blanks are compressed upon output.
- facta, factb, factc
Scaling factors (positive or negative) applied to the corresponding variables (default to 1.0).
Creates a new variable by finding the largest of up to three variables according to the operation:
IR = Largest of (FACTA x IA, FACTB x IB, FACTC x IC)
The comparison is done at each time location, so that the new variable is the “envelope” of the three existing variables.
