ematwrite

Mapdl.ematwrite(key='', **kwargs)

Forces the writing of all the element matrices to File.EMAT.

APDL Command: EMATWRITE

Parameters
key

Write key:

YES - Forces the writing of the element matrices to

File.EMAT even if not normally done.

NO - Element matrices are written only if required. This

value is the default.

Notes

The EMATWRITE command forces ANSYS to write the File.EMAT file. The file is necessary if you intend to follow the initial load step with a subsequent inertia relief calculation (IRLF). If used in the solution processor (/SOLU), this command is only valid within the first load step.

This command is also valid in PREP7.

Return type
