Mapdl.awave(wavenum='', wavetype='', opt1='', opt2='', val1='', val2='', val3='', val4='', val5='', val6='', val7='', val8='', val9='', val10='', val11='', val12='', val13='', **kwargs)

Specifies input data for an acoustic incident wave.

APDL Command: AWAVE

Parameters
  • wavenum – Wave number. You specify the integer number for an acoustic incident wave inside or outside the model. The number must be between 1 and 20.

  • wavetype

    Wave type:

    PLAN - Planar incident wave

    MONO - Monopole or pulsating sphere incident wave

    DIPO - Dipole incident wave

    BACK - Back enclosed loudspeaker

    BARE - Bare loudspeaker

    STATUS - Displays the status of the acoustic wave settings if Wavenum = a number between

    1 and 20 or ALL.

    DELE - Deletes the acoustic wave settings if Wavenum = a number between 1 and 20 or

    ALL.

  • opt1

    PRES

    PRES - Pressure

    VELO - Velocity

  • opt2

    EXT

    EXT - Incident wave outside the model.

    INT - Incident wave inside the model. This option is only available for pure

    scattered pressure formulation.

  • val1

    If Wavetype = PLAN, MONO, DIPO, BACK, or BARE:

    VAL1 - Amplitude of pressure or normal velocity to the sphere surface.

    VAL2 - Phase angle of the applied pressure or velocity (in degrees). Defaults to 0

    degrees.

  • val2

    If Wavetype = PLAN, MONO, DIPO, BACK, or BARE:

    VAL1 - Amplitude of pressure or normal velocity to the sphere surface.

    VAL2 - Phase angle of the applied pressure or velocity (in degrees). Defaults to 0

    degrees.

  • val3

    If Wavetype = PLAN, MONO, DIPO, BACK, or BARE:

    VAL1 - Amplitude of pressure or normal velocity to the sphere surface.

    VAL2 - Phase angle of the applied pressure or velocity (in degrees). Defaults to 0

    degrees.

  • . () –

    If Wavetype = PLAN, MONO, DIPO, BACK, or BARE:

    VAL1 - Amplitude of pressure or normal velocity to the sphere surface.

    VAL2 - Phase angle of the applied pressure or velocity (in degrees). Defaults to 0

    degrees.

  • val13

    If Wavetype = PLAN, MONO, DIPO, BACK, or BARE:

    VAL1 - Amplitude of pressure or normal velocity to the sphere surface.

    VAL2 - Phase angle of the applied pressure or velocity (in degrees). Defaults to 0

    degrees.

Notes

Use the ASOL command to activate the scattered field algorithm and the ASCRES command for output control with the scattered field algorithm. Refer to Acoustics in the Mechanical APDL Theory Reference for more information about pure scattered field formulation.
