Mapdl.mfci(val1='', val2='', **kwargs)[source]#

Sets the control parameters used by the conservative (CPP)

APDL Command: MFCI interpolation scheme.


Controls the pixel resolution. The higher the resolution, the more accurate and more expensive the conservative (CPP) interpolation will be. Valid values are 10 to 256; defaults to 100.


The separation factor to handle any gap between the two surfaces. It is a relative measure of the gap, normalized by the averaged element face sizes from both sides of the interface. Defaults to 0.1.


In a conservative (CPP) interpolation scheme as specified on the MFLCOMM command, each element face is first divided into n number of faces, where n is the number of nodes on the face. The three- dimensional faces are then converted onto a two-dimensional polygon made up of rows and columns of dots called pixels. By default, these pixels have a resolution of 100 x 100; use VAL1 to increase the resolution and improve the accuracy of the algorithm. See Load Interpolation in the Coupled-Field Analysis Guide for more information on interpolation schemes and adjusting the pixel resolution for the conservative interpolation scheme.
