nsol

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

Specifies nodal data to be stored from the results file.

APDL Command: NSOL

Parameters
nvar

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

Node for which data are to be stored.

item

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

comp

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

name

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.

sector

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

Notes

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.
