Mapdl.nsol(nvar='', node='', item='', comp='', name='', sector='', **kwargs)

Specifies nodal data to be stored from the results file.

APDL Command: NSOL


Arbitrary reference number or name assigned to this variable. Variable numbers can be 2 to NV (NUMVAR) while the name can be an eight byte character string. Overwrites any existing results for this variable.


Node for which data are to be stored.


Label identifying the item. Valid item labels are shown in the table below. Some items also require a component label.


Component of the item (if required). Valid component labels are shown in the table below.


Thirty-two character name identifying the item on printouts and displays. Defaults to a label formed by concatenating the first four characters of the Item and Comp labels.


For a full harmonic cyclic symmetry solution, the sector number for which the results from NODE are to be stored.


Stores nodal degree of freedom and solution results in a variable. For more information, see Data Interpreted in the Nodal Coordinate System in the Modeling and Meshing Guide.

For SECTOR>1, the result is in the nodal coordinate system of the base sector, and it is rotated to the expanded sector’s location. Refer to Using the /CYCEXPAND Command in the Cyclic Symmetry Analysis Guide for more information.

For SHELL131 and SHELL132 elements with KEYOPT(3) = 0 or 1, use the labels TBOT, TE2, TE3, …, TTOP instead of TEMP.
