- Mapdl.modcont(mlskey='', enforcedkey='', **kwargs)¶
Specify additional modal analysis options.
APDL Command: MODCONT
Multiple load step key:
- OFF - Perform the modal analysis (compute the eigenvalues and the load vector) for
each load step. (default)
- ON - Perform the modal analysis (compute the eigenvalues and the load vector) only
for the first load step; form the load vector for each subsequent load step (without repeating the eigenvalue calculations) and write all load vectors to the Jobname.MODE file for downstream mode-superposition analyses.
Enforced motion key:
OFF - Do not calculate enforced static modes. (default)
ON - Calculate enforced static modes and write them to the Jobname.MODE file.
Specifies additional modal analysis (ANTYPE,MODAL) options.
Use the LVSCALE command to apply the desired load in a mode- superposition transient or harmonic analysis.
The maximum number of load vectors that can be used in the downstream mode-superposition transient or harmonic analysis is: 240.
Generation of multiple loads (MLSkey = ON) is supported by the Block Lanczos, PCG Lanczos, Supernode, Subspace, Unsymmetric, and QR damped modal methods.
The enforced motion calculation (EnforcedKey = ON) is supported by the Block Lanczos and Supernode mode extraction methods.
