Description

nodeset generates a list containing node identifiers, name specifying the name of the element set (a string not exceeding 40 characters). The list can then be assigned to i.e. boundary conditions or it can be processed in the post-processor.

Node sets alway store the entries of the list in ascending order. Duplicate entries in the set are not admitted or eliminated. Thus, in contrast to node lists, the position of an entry in a node set has no meaning.

Attributes

branch br

Specifies the branch number to which subsequently defined node identifiers will be assigned The default branch is 1.

nodelist id

Copies all node identifiers found in the already defined node list id to the current node set.

epatch ide1-e12|f1-f6|b

Copies all node identifiers found in the already defined node list for the epatch with identifier id.

Nodes located on the epatch edges are specified with e1 to e12.

Nodes located on the epatch faces are specified with f1 to f6.

Nodes located on the epatch body (all nodes of the epatch) are secified with b.

Data

list

Specifies a list of node identifiers of the current branch.

Examples

Specify the node set 'left_edge_1' containing a list of nodes for (default) branch 1:

nodeset "left_edge_1"
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
end

Specify the node set 'left_edge_and_right_edge' containing the set 'left_edge_1' and additional nodes for (default) branch 1:

nodeset "left_edge_and_right_edge"
  set edge1 20 30 40 50
end
