FP – Defines the fatigue S vs. PRAS – Prints a specified acoustic quantity during postprocessing of an acoustic analysis.

VINV – Finds the intersection of volumes. VDOT – Forms an element table item from the dot product of two vectors. VSBA – Subtracts areas from volumes.

SRSS – Specifies the square root of sum of squares mode combination method. FL – Defines a set of fatigue location parameters. EXP – Forms the exponential of a variable. KGEN – Generates additional keypoints from a pattern of keypoints.

LSLK – Selects those lines containing the selected keypoints. NSLV – Selects those nodes associated with the selected volumes. SAVE – Saves all current database information. FILE – Specifies the data file where results are to be found.


Instead arguments for commands are separated by commas. CQC – Specifies the complete quadratic mode combination method. You put them in real constants.

20 APDL Commands Every ANSYS Mechanical User Should Know

AFSURF – Generates surface elements overlaid on the surface of existing solid elements and assigns the extra node as the closest fluid element node. But what you need to know now is that all APDL commands start with a keyword and are followed by arguments.

ANPRES – Produces an animated sequence of the time-harmonic pressure variation of an engine-order excitation in a cyclic harmonic analysis. CE – Defines a constraint referecne relating degrees of freedom. If you change the active coordinate system make sure you set it back to the global system with CSYS,0. PSEL – Selects a path or paths. TBPT – Defines a point on a nonlinear data curve. NDSURF – Generates surface elements overlaid on the edge of existing elements and commsnd the extra node as the closest fluid element node.

VDOT – Forms an element table item from the dot product of two vectors. MMF – Calculates the magnetomotive force along a path.

EDPC – Selects and plots explicit ansyd contact entities. AINP – Finds the pairwise intersection of areas. Typical real constants include hourglass stiffness, contact parameters, stranded coil parameters, and plane thicknesses. ROCK – Specifies a rocking response spectrum.


VADD – Adds separate volumes to create a single volume. LIST – Lists out anys sets in the results file. Use it a lot.

ANSYS Commands Manual Topic Index

VPUT – Moves an array parameter vector into a variable. Any characters to the right of one are ignored by the program. UPGEOM – Adds displacements from a previous analysis and updates the geometry of the finite element model to the deformed configuration. NSLA – Selects those nodes associated with the selected areas.

EN – Defines an element by its number and node connectivity. FK – Defines force loads at keypoints. Table of Contents 1. LSBL – Subtracts lines from lines.

SPH5 – Creates a spherical volume by diameter end points. Therefore, instead of defining a Node in your model as: Also note that we are not getting in to how to script with APDL. FJ – Specify forces or moments on the components of the relative motion of a joint element.
