gsbdata

Mapdl.gsbdata(labz='', valuez='', labx='', valuex='', laby='', valuey='', **kwargs)

Specifies the constraints or applies the load at the ending point for

APDL Command: GSBDATA generalized plane strain option.

Parameters
  • labz

    Constraint or load at the ending point in the fiber Z direction.

    F - Apply a force in the fiber direction (default).

    LFIBER - Define a length change in the fiber direction.

  • valuez – Value for LabZ. The default is zero.

  • labx

    Constraint or load on rotation about X.

    MX - Supply a moment to cause the rotation of the ending plane about X (default).

    ROTX - Define a rotation angle (in radians) of the ending plane about X.

  • valuex – Value for LabX. The default is zero.

  • laby

    Constraint or load on rotation about Y

    MY - Supply a moment to cause the rotation of the ending plane about Y (default).

    ROTY - Define a rotation angle (in radians) of the ending plane about Y.

  • valuey – Value for LabY. The default is zero.

Notes

All inputs are in the global Cartesian coordinate system. For more information about the generalized plane strain feature, see Generalized Plane Strain Option of Current-Technology Solid Elements in the Element Reference.

This command is also valid in PREP7.
