prcplx

Mapdl.prcplx(key='', **kwargs)

Defines the output form for complex variables.

APDL Command: PRCPLX

Parameters

key

Output form key:

0 - Real and imaginary parts.

1 - Amplitude and phase angle. Stored real and imaginary data are converted to

amplitude and phase angle upon output. Data remain stored as real and imaginary parts.

Notes

Defines the output form for complex variables. Used only with harmonic analyses (ANTYPE,HARMIC).

All results data are stored in the form of real and imaginary components and converted to amplitude and/or phase angle as specified via the PRCPLX command. The conversion is not valid for derived results (such as principal stress/strain, equivalent stress/strain and USUM).
