plvar

Mapdl.plvar(nvar1='', nvar2='', nvar3='', nvar4='', nvar5='', nvar6='', nvar7='', nvar8='', nvar9='', nvar10='', **kwargs)

Displays up to ten variables in the form of a graph.

APDL Command: PLVAR

Parameters
  • nvar1 – Variables to be displayed, defined either by the reference number or a unique thirty-two character name. If duplicate names are used the command will plot the data for the lowest-numbered variable with that name.

  • nvar2 – Variables to be displayed, defined either by the reference number or a unique thirty-two character name. If duplicate names are used the command will plot the data for the lowest-numbered variable with that name.

  • nvar3 – Variables to be displayed, defined either by the reference number or a unique thirty-two character name. If duplicate names are used the command will plot the data for the lowest-numbered variable with that name.

  • . () – Variables to be displayed, defined either by the reference number or a unique thirty-two character name. If duplicate names are used the command will plot the data for the lowest-numbered variable with that name.

  • nvar10 – Variables to be displayed, defined either by the reference number or a unique thirty-two character name. If duplicate names are used the command will plot the data for the lowest-numbered variable with that name.

Notes

Variables are displayed vs. variable N on the XVAR command. The string value will be a predefined, unique name. For complex variables, the amplitude is displayed by default [PLCPLX]. Each PLVAR command produces a new frame. See the /GRTYP command for displaying multiple variables in a single frame with separate Y-axes.
