- Mapdl.set(lstep='', sbstep='', fact='', kimg='', time='', angle='', nset='', order='', **kwargs)#
Defines the data set to be read from the results file.
APDL Command: SET
Load step number of the data set to be read (defaults to 1):
Read load step N.
Read the first data set (
Read the last data set (
Read the next data set (
TIMEare ignored). If at the last data set, the first data set will be read as the next.
Read the previous data set (
TIMEare ignored). If at the first data set, the last data set will be read as the previous.
Read the data set nearest to
Sbstepis ignored). If
TIMEis blank, read the first data set.
Scan the results file and list a summary of each load step. (
Changed in version 0.64: From version 0.64 you can use the methods
to_arrayon the object returning from
Substep number (within Lstep). Defaults to the last substep of the load step (except in a buckling or modal analysis). For a buckling (
ANTYPE,BUCKLE) or modal (
Sbstepcorresponds to the mode number. Specify
Sbstep = LASTto store the last substep for the specified load step (that is, issue a
Scale factor applied to data read from the file. If zero (or blank), a value of 1.0 is used. This scale factor is only applied to displacement and stress results. A nonzero factor excludes non- summable items.
Used only with complex results (harmonic and complex modal analyses).
- 0 or REAL
Store the real part of complex solution (default).
- 1, 2 or IMAG
Store the imaginary part of a complex solution.
- 3 or AMPL
Store the amplitude
- 4 or PHAS
Store the phase angle. The angle value, expressed in degrees, will be between -180° and +180°.
Time-point identifying the data set to be read. For a harmonic analyses, time corresponds to the frequency.
Circumferential location (0.0 to 360°). Defines the circumferential location for the harmonic calculations used when reading from the results file.
Data set number of the data set to be read. If a positive value for
TIMEare ignored. Available set numbers can be determined by
Key to sort the harmonic index results. This option applies to cyclic symmetry buckling and modal analyses only, and is valid only when
Lstep = FIRST, LAST, NEXT, PREVIOUS, NEAR or LIST.
Sort the harmonic index results in ascending order of eigenfrequencies or buckling load multipliers.
No sorting takes place.
Defines the data set to be read from the results file into the database. Various operations may also be performed during the read operation. The database must have the model geometry available (or use the
RESUMEcommand before the
SETcommand to restore the geometry from
<Jobname.DB>). Values for applied constraints [
D] and loads [
F] in the database will be replaced by their corresponding values on the results file, if available. (See the description of the
OUTREScommand.) In a single load step analysis, these values are usually the same, except for results from harmonic elements. (See the description of the ANGLE value above.)
In an interactive run, the sorted list (
ORDERoption) is also available for results-set reading via a GUI pick option.
You can postprocess results without issuing a
SETcommand if the solution results were saved to the database file (
<Jobname.DB>). Distributed ANSYS, however, can only postprocess using the results file (for example, Jobname.RST) and cannot use the
<Jobname.DB>file since no solution results are written to the database. Therefore, you must issue a
SETcommand or a
RESCOMBINEcommand before postprocessing in Distributed ANSYS.
