pmlsize

Mapdl.pmlsize(freqb='', freqe='', dmin='', dmax='', thick='', angle='', **kwargs)

Determines number of PML layers.

APDL Command: PMLSIZE

Parameters
freqb

Minimum operating frequency

freqe

Maximum operating frequency

dmin

Minimum distance from radiation source to PML interface.

dmax

Maximum distance from radiation source to PML interface.

thick

Thickness of PML region. Defaults to 0.

angle

Incident angle of wave to the PML interface. Defaults to 0.

Notes

PMLSIZE determines the number of PML layers for acceptable numerical accuracy.

PMLSIZE must be issued before any meshing commands. If the thickness of the PML region is known, it determines an element edge length (h) and issues ESIZE,h. If the thickness of the PML region is unknown, it determines the number of layers (n) and issues ESIZE,,n.
