edenergy

Mapdl.edenergy(hgen='', swen='', sien='', rlen='', **kwargs)

Specifies energy dissipation controls for an explicit dynamics

APDL Command: EDENERGY analysis.

Parameters
hgen

Hourglass energy control key:

OFF or 0 - Hourglass energy is not computed.

ON or 1 - Hourglass energy is computed and included in the energy balance (default).

swen

Stonewall energy dissipation control key:

OFF or 0 - Stonewall energy dissipation is not computed.

ON or 1 - Stonewall energy dissipation is computed and included in the energy balance

(default).

sien

Sliding interface energy dissipation control key:

OFF or 0 - Sliding interface energy dissipation is not computed.

ON or 1 - Sliding interface energy dissipation is computed and included in the energy

balance (default).

rlen

Rayleigh (damping) energy dissipation control key:

OFF or 0 - Rayleigh energy dissipation is not computed.

ON or 1 - Rayleigh energy dissipation is computed and included in the energy balance

(default).
