So, as a way to get ANSYS Mechanical users out there started down the road of loving APDL commands, we got together and came up with a. Directly type in the commands into a text file from scratch. This assumes a good knowledge of the ANSYS command language and the associated options.

VADD – Adds separate volumes to create a single volume. SFA – Specifies surface loads on the selected areas. TREF – Defines the reference temperature for the thermal strain calculations. In fact, I was in a room next to one of our support engineers while they were showing a customer how to change the elements that the solver would solve Mechanical defaults to the most common andys, but you can change them to whatever commadn makes sense and the user had to admit he had never really used or even seen APDL commands before.

MMF – Calculates the commannd force along a path. SFE – Specifies surface loads on elements. DA – Defines degree-of-freedom constraints on areas. CBMX – Specifies preintegrated cross-section stiffness for composite beam sections.


V Commands V – Defines a volume through keypoints. SPH4 – Creates a spherical volume anywhere on the working plane. ABS – Forms the absolute value of a variable. IMPD – Calculates the impedance of a conductor at a reference plane.

Also note that we are not getting in to how to script with APDL. EDPL – Plots a time dependent load curve in an explicit dynamic analysis. DVAL – Commanc values at enforced motion base. CBMD – Specifies preintegrated section mass matrix for composite-beam sections.

SFA – Specifies surface loads on the selected areas. This is the fastest way to change an elements definition. This is awesome because you as a user have complete and full access to the huge breadth and depth available in the MAPDL program. MODE – Specifies the harmonic loading term commanf this load step.

MAP – Maps pressures from source points to target surface elements.

PSEL – Selects a path or paths. ABS – Forms the absolute value of a variable. NSOL – Specifies nodal data to be stored from the results file.

CNTR – Redirects contact pair output quantities to a text file. PLZZ – Plots the interference diagram from a cyclic modal analysis. It works a lot like the D and F commands.

GRP – Specifies the grouping mode combination method. BLC4 – Creates a rectangular area or block volume by corner points. The F command is the same as the D command, except it defines forces instead of displacement. DSYS – Activates a display coordinate system for geometry listings and plots.

We are not going to give too much detail on their usage, the APDL help is fantastic and it explains everything.

STAT – Displays the status of database settings. NSVR – Defines the number of variables for user-programmable element options.

It is a truly parametric command language in that you can replace most values in commands with parameters. MAT – Sets the element material attribute pointer. KUSE – Specifies whether or not to reuse the factorized matrix.
