- Mapdl.pcirc(rad1='', rad2='', theta1='', theta2='', **kwargs)¶
Create a circular area centered about the working plane origin.
APDL Command: PCIRC
Defines a solid circular area or circular sector centered about the working plane origin. For a solid circle of 360°, the area will be defined with four keypoints and four lines. See the
cyl5commands for alternate ways to create circles.
- rad1, rad2
Inner and outer radii (either order) of the circle. A value of either zero or blank for either
rad2, or the same value for both
rad2, defines a solid circle.
- theta1, theta2
Starting and ending angles (either order) of the circular area. Used for creating a circular sector. The sector begins at the algebraically smaller angle, extends in a positive angular direction, and ends at the larger angle. The starting angle defaults to 0.0° and the ending angle defaults to 360.0°. See the Modeling and Meshing Guide for an illustration.
Area number of the new circular area.
In this example a circular area with an inner radius of 0.95 and an outer radius of 1 is created.
>>> anum = mapdl.pcirc(0.95, 1) >>> anum 1
