fscale

Mapdl.fscale(rfact='', ifact='', **kwargs)

Scales force load values in the database.

APDL Command: FSCALE

Parameters
rfact

Scale factor for the real component. Zero (or blank) defaults to 1.0. Use a small number for a zero scale factor.

ifact

Scale factor for the imaginary component. Zero (or blank) defaults to 1.0. Use a small number for a zero scale factor.

Notes

Scales force load (force, heat flow, etc.) values in the database. Scaling applies to the previously defined values for the selected nodes [NSEL] and the selected force labels [DOFSEL]. Issue FLIST command to review results. Solid model boundary conditions are not scaled by this command, but boundary conditions on the FE model are scaled.

Note:: : Such scaled FE boundary conditions may still be overwritten by unscaled solid model boundary conditions if a subsequent boundary condition transfer occurs.

FSCALE does not work for tabular boundary conditions.

This command is also valid in PREP7.
