Mapdl.mfpsimul(gname='', fname1='', fname2='', **kwargs)

Sets up a field solver group to simultaneously process with code

APDL Command: MFPSIMUL coupling analyses.


Sets the group name with a character string of up to 80 characters.

fname1, fname2

Sets the field solver 1 and field solver 2 names, which are processed simultaneously, with a character string of up to 80 characters.


This command is used to define a group of simultaneously-processed field solvers in an MFX analysis. For example, to define group g1 with field solvers ansys-code and cfx-code, enter MFPS,g1,ansys-code,cfx- code.

To indicate groups of sequentially-processed field solvers for your MFX analysis, create two groups (g1 and g2).

A field solver refers to a specific instance of an ANSYS or CFX solver execution that is defined by the respective input file(s) referenced when starting the solver (through the launcher or from the command line). The field solver names that are referenced in several MFX commands must be consistent with the names that will be used when starting the coupled simulation.

Note:: : When running MFX from the launcher, you must use ANSYS and CFX (uppercase) as the field solver names (MFPSIMUL) in your input file.

See Multi-field Commands in the Coupled-Field Analysis Guide for a list of all ANSYS Multi-field solver commands and their availability for MFS and MFX analyses.

Distributed ANSYS Restriction: This command is not supported in Distributed ANSYS.
