elemental_difference

class ansys.dpf.core.operators.averaging.elemental_difference.elemental_difference(field=None, mesh_scoping=None, mesh=None, through_layers=None, config=None, server=None)

Transform ElementalNodal or Nodal field into Elemental field. Each elemental value is the maximum difference between the computed result for all nodes in this element. Result is computed on a given element scoping.

available inputs:
  • field (Field, FieldsContainer)

  • mesh_scoping (Scoping) (optional)

  • mesh (MeshedRegion) (optional)

  • through_layers (bool) (optional)

available outputs:
  • fields_container (FieldsContainer)

Examples

>>> from ansys.dpf import core as dpf
>>> # Instantiate operator
>>> op = dpf.operators.averaging.elemental_difference()
>>> # Make input connections
>>> my_field = dpf.Field()
>>> op.inputs.field.connect(my_field)
>>> my_mesh_scoping = dpf.Scoping()
>>> op.inputs.mesh_scoping.connect(my_mesh_scoping)
>>> my_mesh = dpf.MeshedRegion()
>>> op.inputs.mesh.connect(my_mesh)
>>> my_through_layers = bool()
>>> op.inputs.through_layers.connect(my_through_layers)
>>> # Instantiate operator and connect inputs in one line
>>> op = dpf.operators.averaging.elemental_difference(field=my_field,mesh_scoping=my_mesh_scoping,mesh=my_mesh,through_layers=my_through_layers)
>>> # Get output data
>>> result_fields_container = op.outputs.fields_container()
static default_config()

Returns the default config for a given operator. This config can then be changed to the user needs and be used to instantiate the given operator

Parameters
  • name (str) – Name of the operator. For example ‘U’.

  • server (server.DPFServer, optional) – Server with channel connected to the remote or local instance. When None, attempts to use the the global server.
