PropertyField#

class ansys.dpf.core.property_field.PropertyField(nentities=0, nature=natures.scalar, location='Nodal', property_field=None, server=None)#

Describes field properties such as connectivity.

This class is a field with integer values instead of double values.

Parameters
  • nentities (int) – Number of entities that the property field is to contain. The default is 0.

  • nature (core.natures) – Nature of the property field, such as scalar or vector.

  • location (str, optional) – Location of the property field. Options are "Nodal" or "Elemental". The default is "Nodal".

  • field (property) – Name of the property field. The default is None.

  • server (server.DPFServer, optional) – Server with the channel connected to the remote or local instance. The default is None, in which case an attempt is made to use the global server.

Returns

property_field

Return type

PropertyField

Examples

>>> from ansys.dpf import core as dpf
>>> pfield = dpf.PropertyField()
>>> list_ids = [1, 2, 4, 6, 7]
>>> scop = dpf.Scoping(ids = list_ids, location = dpf.locations.nodal)
>>> pfield.scoping = scop
>>> list_data = [20, 30, 50, 70, 80]
>>> pfield.data = list_data
property location#

Location of the property field.

A property field contains a scoping, which is the location that is read. To update location, directly update the scoping location.

Returns

location – Location string, which is either "Nodal" or "Elemental".

Return type

str

Examples

Create a property field and request the location.

>>> from ansys.dpf import core as dpf
>>> pfield = dpf.PropertyField()
>>> list_ids = [1, 2, 4, 6, 7]
>>> scop = dpf.Scoping(ids = list_ids, location = dpf.locations.nodal)
>>> pfield.scoping = scop
>>> pfield.scoping.location = dpf.locations.nodal
>>> pfield.location
'Nodal'
as_local_field()#

Create a deep copy of the field locally.

This copy can then be accessed and modified locally, without a request being sent to the server. This method should be used in a with statement so that the local field is released and the data is sent to the server in one action. If it’s not used in a with statement, the method release_data() should be used to actually update the field.

Warning

If this as_local_field method is not used as a context manager in a with statement or if the method release_data() is not called, the data will not actually be updated.

Returns

local_field

Return type

...     for i in range(1,num_entities+1):
...         f.append(list(range(i,i+3)),i)
