Mapdl.mfsurface(inumb='', fnumb1='', label='', fnumb2='', **kwargs)#

Defines a surface load transfer for an ANSYS Multi-field solver

APDL Command: MFSURFACE analysis.


Interface number for load transfer. The interface number corresponds to the interface number specified by the surface flag FSIN (SFxxcommands).


Field number of sending field.


Valid surface load labels:


Field number for receiving field.


This command is also valid in PREP7.

The ANSYS Multi-field solver solver does not allow you to switch the load transfer direction for the same load quantity across the same interfaces for a restart run. For example, if Field1 sends temperature to and receives heat flow from Field2 across Interface 1 in a previous solution, then you cannot make Field1 send heat flow to and receive temperatures from Field2 across the same interface in a restart run, even if you cleared the corresponding load transfer command.

See Multi-field Commands in the Coupled-Field Analysis Guide for a list of all ANSYS Multi-field solver commands and their availability for MFS and MFX analyses.

Distributed ANSYS Restriction: This command is not supported in Distributed ANSYS.
