Parameter definition

Variable
Description
setid
Unique geometry set identification number
gid${}_1$, ..., gid${}_8$
Geometry identification number 1 to 8
.
gid${}_{\mathrm{M}}$, ..., gid${}_{\mathrm{N}}$
Geometry identification number M to N

Description

This command defines a set of geometries (see e.g. GEOMETRY_BOX).

Example

Pressure load on a surface defined with a geometry set

The commands below define a pressure load on square plate. Geometry 1 marks all faces on the top surface of the plate. Geometry 2 is a box. Referring to -2 means that all faces inside the box are removed from the face list. Geometry 3 adds faces inside a cylinder and, finally, Geometry 4 removes faces inside a box.
