FE Constraints

These SOLUTION commands are used to define constraints on the finite element model.

Mapdl.d([node, lab, value, value2, nend, ...])

Defines degree-of-freedom constraints at nodes.

Mapdl.dcum([oper, rfact, ifact, tbase])

Specifies that DOF constraint values are to be accumulated.

Mapdl.ddele([node, lab, nend, ninc, rkey])

Deletes degree-of-freedom constraints.

Mapdl.dflx([node, bx, by, bz, bx2, by2, bz2])

Imposes a uniform magnetic flux B on an edge-element electromagnetic

Mapdl.dj([elem, label, value])

Specifies boundary conditions on the components of relative motion of a

Mapdl.djdele([elem, lab])

Deletes boundary conditions on the components of relative motion of a


Lists boundary conditions applied to joint elements.

Mapdl.dlist([node1, node2, ninc])

Lists DOF constraints.

Mapdl.dscale([rfact, ifact, tbase])

Scales DOF constraint values.

Mapdl.dsym([lab, normal, kcn])

Specifies symmetry or antisymmetry degree-of-freedom constraints on

Mapdl.dval([baseid, lab, value, value2, keycal])

Defines values at enforced motion base.

Mapdl.gsbdata([labz, valuez, labx, valuex, ...])

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


When using generalized plane strain, lists the input data or solutions.
