element_scoping: list, int or dpf.core.Scoping
grouping: str. Use post.grouping.(...) as helper.
location: str. Use post.locations.(...) as helper.

            contains a list of coordinates,
            e.g. [[0.1, 0.0, 0.0],
            [0.0, 0.1, 0.0]].

Get Result objects#

Get displacement result using scoping#

Get the displacement Result object using scoping. The default location is nodal.

displacement_result = solution.displacement(
    location=post.locations.nodal, node_scoping=[1, 2, 3]
displacement = displacement_result.vector

Get information on result#

Get information on the displacement result.


stress_with_elem_scop_result = solution.stress(
    location=post.locations.elemental_nodal, element_scoping=[1]

Stress Tensor object.

Object properties:
 - location   : ElementalNodal
 - named_selection : SELECTION

Stress Tensor object.

Object properties:
 - location   : Elemental
 - named_selection : SELECTION
 - time       : 1.0

Use miscellaneous results#

Use miscellaneous results. You can use the same keywords here. For a complex result, you can also use the keyword phase, which has a float value.

stress_ratio = solution.misc.elemental_stress_ratio(node_scoping=[1, 32], time=1.0)
Stress result.

This result has been computed using dpf.core.Operator objects, which
have been chained together according to the following list:
- ENL_SRAT: Result operator. Compute the desired result.
- to_elemental_fc: This operator computes the elemental averaging of a fields container.
