sfscale

Mapdl.sfscale(lab='', fact='', fact2='', **kwargs)

Scales surface loads on elements.

APDL Command: SFSCALE

Parameters
lab

Valid surface load label. If ALL, use all appropriate labels.

fact

Scale factor for the first surface load value. Zero (or blank) defaults to 1.0. Use a small number for a zero scale factor.

fact2

Scale factor for the second surface load value. Zero (or blank) defaults to 1.0. Use a small number for a zero scale factor.

Notes

Scales surface loads (pressure, convection, etc.) in the database on the selected elements. Surface loads are applied with the SF, SFE, or SFBEAM commands. Issue the SFELIST command to list the surface loads. 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.

SFSCALE does not work for tabular boundary conditions.

This command is also valid in PREP7 and in the /MAP processor.
