Mapdl.mpdele(lab='', mat1='', mat2='', inc='', lchk='', **kwargs)

APDL Command: MPDELE

Deletes linear material properties.

Parameters
  • lab – Material property label (see MP command for valid labels). If ALL, delete properties for all applicable labels.

  • mat1 – Delete materials from MAT1 to MAT2 (defaults to MAT1) in steps of INC (defaults to 1). If MAT1 = ALL, MAT2 and INC are ignored and the properties for all materials are deleted.

  • mat2 – Delete materials from MAT1 to MAT2 (defaults to MAT1) in steps of INC (defaults to 1). If MAT1 = ALL, MAT2 and INC are ignored and the properties for all materials are deleted.

  • inc – Delete materials from MAT1 to MAT2 (defaults to MAT1) in steps of INC (defaults to 1). If MAT1 = ALL, MAT2 and INC are ignored and the properties for all materials are deleted.

  • lchk

    Specifies the level of element-associativity checking:

    NOCHECK - No element-associativity check occurs. This option is the default.

    WARN - When a section, material, or real constant is associated with an element, ANSYS

    issues a message warning that the necessary entity has been deleted.

    CHECK - The command terminates, and no section, material, or real constant is deleted

    if it is associated with an element.

Notes

This command is also valid in SOLUTION.

The LCHK argument is valid only when Lab = ALL.
