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, val2, val3, … , 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.
