Expand displacement results#

This example expands displacement results, by default on all nodes and the first time step. Note that the displacements are expanded using the read_cyclic property with 2 as an argument (1 does not perform expansion of the cyclic symmetry).

# Create displacement cyclic operator
u_cyc = model.results.displacement()
u_cyc.inputs.read_cyclic(2)

# expand the displacements
fields = u_cyc.outputs.fields_container()

# # get the expanded mesh
mesh_provider = model.metadata.mesh_provider
mesh_provider.inputs.read_cyclic(2)
mesh = mesh_provider.outputs.mesh()

# plot the expanded result on the expanded mesh
mesh.plot(fields[0])
01 modal cyclic

Expand stresses at a given time step#

# define stress expansion operator and request stresses at time set = 8
scyc_op = model.results.stress()
scyc_op.inputs.read_cyclic(2)
scyc_op.inputs.time_scoping.connect([8])

# request the results averaged on the nodes
scyc_op.inputs.requested_location.connect(dpf.locations.nodal)

# request equivalent von mises operator and connect it to stress operator
eqv = dpf.operators.invariant.von_mises_eqv_fc(scyc_op)

# expand the results and get stress eqv
fields = eqv.outputs.fields_container()

# plot the expanded result on the expanded mesh
# mesh.plot(fields[0])

Expand stresses at given sectors#

# define stress expansion operator and request stresses at time set = 8
# request the results averaged on the nodes
# request results on sectors 1, 3 and 5
scyc_op = dpf.operators.result.cyclic_expanded_stress(
    streams_container=model.metadata.streams_provider,
    time_scoping=[8],
    requested_location=dpf.locations.nodal,
    sectors_to_expand=[1, 3, 5],
)

# extract Sx (use component selector and select the first component)
comp_sel = dpf.operators.logic.component_selector_fc(scyc_op, 0)

# expand the displacements and get the resuls
fields = comp_sel.outputs.fields_container()

# plot the expanded result on the expanded mesh
# mesh.plot(fields[0])

Expand stresses and average to elemental location#

# define stress expansion operator and request stresses at time set = 8
scyc_op = dpf.operators.result.cyclic_expanded_stress(
    streams_container=model.metadata.streams_provider,
    time_scoping=[8],
    sectors_to_expand=[1, 3, 5],
    bool_rotate_to_global=False,
)

# request to elemental averaging operator
to_elemental = dpf.operators.averaging.to_elemental_fc(scyc_op)

# extract Sy (use component selector and select the component 1)
comp_sel = dpf.operators.logic.component_selector_fc(to_elemental, 1)

# expand the displacements and get the resuls
fields = comp_sel.outputs.fields_container()

# # plot the expanded result on the expanded mesh
mesh.plot(fields)
