mfci

Mapdl.mfci(val1='', val2='', **kwargs)

Sets the control parameters used by the conservative (CPP)

APDL Command: MFCI interpolation scheme.

Parameters
val1

Controls the pixel resolution. The higher the resolution, the more accurate and more expensive the conservative (CPP) interpolation will be. Valid values are 10 to 256; defaults to 100.

val2

The separation factor to handle any gap between the two surfaces. It is a relative measure of the gap, normalized by the averaged element face sizes from both sides of the interface. Defaults to 0.1.

Notes

In a conservative (CPP) interpolation scheme as specified on the MFLCOMM command, each element face is first divided into n number of faces, where n is the number of nodes on the face. The three- dimensional faces are then converted onto a two-dimensional polygon made up of rows and columns of dots called pixels. By default, these pixels have a resolution of 100 x 100; use VAL1 to increase the resolution and improve the accuracy of the algorithm. See Load Interpolation in the Coupled-Field Analysis Guide for more information on interpolation schemes and adjusting the pixel resolution for the conservative interpolation scheme.
