Question about eblock Ansys

Question about eblock Ansys

(OP)
Ansys reference materials list the eblock command as having the following format
EBLOCK,NUM_NODES, SOLKEY
then the formatted element list

Even showing examples with this format

But the input file exported from workbench has the following format
EBLOCK,NUM_NODES, SOLKEY, X

Where "X" is some number. What is this number? The attached graphic shows the Ansys command reference on the left and my input file on right.

RE: Question about eblock Ansys

Hi Chris,

My exported input file (v17.1) looks a bit different:

CODE --> Ansys

/wb,elem,start            !  set before creation of elements
/com,*********** Elements for Body 1 "13702-00011" ***********
et,1,187
eblock,19,solid,,12875
(19i9) 

My 12875 appears to be the number of elements I have in Body 1.


Best regards,
Sze Kwan (Jason) Cheah
