ascres

Mapdl.ascres(opt='', **kwargs)

Specifies the output type for an acoustic scattering analysis.

APDL Command: ASCRES

Parameters

opt

Output option:

TOTAL - Output the total pressure field (default).

SCAT - Output the scattered pressure field.

Notes

Use the ASCRES command to specify the output type for an acoustic scattering analysis.

The scattered option (Opt = SCAT) provides a scattered pressure output, psc, required for calculating target strength (TS).

The default behavior (Opt = TOTAL) provides a sum of the incident and scattering fields, ptotal = pinc + psc.

Issue the AWAVE command to define the incident pressure pinc. If the AWAVE command is defined with Opt2 = INT, only the total pressure field is output regardless of the ASCRES,Opt command.
