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.

RCYC – Calculates cyclic results for a mode-superposition harmonic solution. Most people use nodal selection or components to apply displacements to multiple nodes. D The most common boundary condition is displacement, even for temperature. MAP – Maps pressures from source points to target surface elements. JSOL – Specifies result items to be stored for the joint element.

VSBW – Subtracts intersection of the working plane from volumes divides volumes.

ASUM – Calculates and prints geometry statistics of the selected areas. You only really need to know these commands if you will be making your own elements… but one of those things everyone should know because the assignment of element attributes is fundamental to the way APDL works….

Typical real constants include hourglass stiffness, contact parameters, stranded anxys parameters, and plane thicknesses.

20 APDL Commands Every ANSYS Mechanical User Should Know

BSAX – Specifies the axial strain and axial force relationship for beam sections. MFEM – Add more element types to a previously defined field number. VSBA – Subtracts areas from volumes. LSLA – Selects those lines contained in the selected areas. VSUM – Calculates and prints geometry statistics of the selected volumes. TCHG – Converts node degenerate aodl elements to their node non-degenerate counterparts. AADD – Adds separate areas to create a single area.


N Commands N – Defines a node. BFL – Defines a body force load on a line.

SSMT – Specifies preintegrated membrane thermal effects for shell sections. READ – Reads coordinate and pressure data from a file. DSUM – Specifies the double sum mode combination method.

It is always a good idea to stick your material definitions in a text file so you 1 have a record of what you used, and 2 can reuse the material model on other simulation jobs. It works a lot like the D and F commands. KL – Generates a keypoint at a specified location on an existing line. It really is a place to put stuff that co,mand no other place.

ANSYS Commands Topic Index

ABS – Forms the absolute ansyys of a variable. GRP – Specifies the grouping mode combination method. EDRD – Switches a part from deformable to rigid or from rigid to deformable in an explicit dynamic analysis. ASBA – Subtracts areas from areas. BFK – Defines a body force load at a keypoint.

CONE – Creates a conical volume centered about the working plane origin. It is a truly parametric command language in that you can replace most values in commands with parameters. KSUM – Calculates and prints geometry statistics of the selected keypoints.

VSBV – Subtracts volumes from volumes. TERM – Specifies various terminal driver options. EDCTS – Specifies mass scaling and scale factor of computed time step for an explicit dynamics analysis. KL – Generates a keypoint at a specified location on an existing line.


CSYS – Activates a previously defined coordinate system. GP – Defines a gap condition for transient analyses. FTYPE – Specifies the file type and pressure type for the subsequent import of source points and pressures. Coordinate system 0 is the global Cartesian system. ADGL – Lists keypoints of an area that lie on a parametric degeneracy. PLST – Plots sound power parameters vs.

Know, it, use it. ESEL – Selects a subset of elements. LSBA – Subtracts areas from lines. LSEL – Selects a subset of lines. DSYM – Specifies symmetry or antisymmetry degree-of-freedom constraints on nodes. If you need to apply a pressure load, you use either SF to apply to com,and ore SFE to apply to elements. SV – Defines spectrum values to be associated with frequency points.

Most revolutionary of all, you can edit and comment commwnd command file to provide complete input listing that takes up less space and will persist over many ANSYS updates. You refer to entities by their ID number. PTXY – Defines coordinate pairs for use in polygons and prisms.
