Get node temperature

Get node temperature

Get node temperature

(OP)
Hi,
I get node temperature via command

CODE --> APDL

*GET,Par,NODE,N,NTEMP 

which works. But if I want to do same for n load steps

CODE --> APDL

*GET,Par,ACTIVE,0,SET,NSET
*DIM,Par2,ARRAY,Par
*DO,i,1,Par
 SET,i,1
 *GET,Par2(i),NODE,N,NTEMP
*ENDDO 

I get only the last time step temperature. The result file is from Ansys Workbench (temperature field is imported via external data). Is it possible get node temperature from all load steps?

Best regards
JK

RE: Get node temperature

Hi JK,

As far as I can tell, I don't see any problem in your script. Perhaps look at other possible source of error?
Does your analysis have multiple load steps? SET,LIST


Kind regards,
Jason

Hi,
thanks to all for tips. I use

CODE --> APDL

*GET,Par2(i),NODE,N,BFE,TEMP 

instead of

CODE --> APDL

*GET,Par2(i),NODE,N,NTEMP 

It works pretty good. But there is an unexpected situation. If temperature field is not declare in some load step, previous temperature field is used. I have to investigate this case and try to fixed that.

Hi,
the unexpected situation is mistake between chair and display. I mix up the indexes. The below code works fine.

CODE --> APDL

*GET,Par2(i),NODE,N,BFE,TEMP
