- Mapdl.scal(name='', val1='', val2='', **kwargs)[source]#
Scales a vector or matrix by a constant or a vector.
Name used to identify the vector or matrix to be scaled. Must be specified.
When scaling a matrix or a vector by a scalar value, Val1 is the real part of the constant to use (default = 1).
When scaling a matrix or a vector by a vector, Val1 is the name of the vector used for the scaling operation.
The imaginary part of the constant to use (default = 0). This value is used only if the vector or matrix specified by Name is complex.
val2 is only valid for scaling by a constant. It is not used when scaling by a vector.
This command can be applied to vectors and matrices created by the
Data types must be consistent between the vectors and matrices being scaled and the scaling vector (or constant value).
When scaling a matrix with a vector, the matrix must be square and the scaling vector must be the same size.
Scaling a matrix with a vector, is available only on MAPDL V23.2 and greater.
