rexport

Mapdl.rexport(target='', lstep='', sbstep='', fname='', ext='', **kwargs)

Exports displacements from an implicit run to ANSYS LS-DYNA.

APDL Command: REXPORT

Parameters
target

The type of analysis run to which displacements are exported.

OFF - Ignore initial displacements.

DYNA - Get initial displacements from an earlier implicit

(ANSYS) run and export to an explicit ANSYS LS-DYNA run (Default).

lstep

Load step number of data to be exported. Defaults to the last load step.

sbstep

Substep number of data to be exported. Defaults to the last substep.

fname

File name and directory path (248 characters maximum, including the characters needed for the directory path). An unspecified directory path defaults to the working directory; in this case, you can use all 248 characters for the file name.

ext

Filename extension (eight-character maximum).

Notes

This command exports the displacements, rotations, and temperatures calculated in an ANSYS implicit analysis into the drelax’ file, which is subsequently read in by ANSYS LS-DYNA when a dynamic relaxation or stress initialization is conducted ``EDDRELAX`.

This command is not written to the Jobname.CDB file when the CDWRITE command is issued.
