- Mapdl.small(ir='', ia='', ib='', ic='', name='', facta='', factb='', factc='', **kwargs)¶
Finds the smallest of three variables.
APDL Command: SMALL
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 identifying the variable on printouts and displays. Embedded blanks are compressed for output.
- facta, factb, factc
Scaling factors (positive or negative) applied to the corresponding variables (defaults to 1.0).
Finds the smallest of three variables according to the operation:
IR = min(FACTA x IA, FACTB x IB, FACTC x IC)
