Parameter definition

VariableDescription
coid Command ID
$n_1$ Number of rows of data points
$n_2$ Number of columns of data points
$x_1$, ..., $x_8$ Data points 1 to 8
$x_M$, ..., $x_N$ Data points $M$ to $N = n_1 \times n_2$

Description

This command defines a cartesian map of $n_1 \times n_2$ data points. The data points are to be listed in a row-wise consecutive order.

Example

Pressure loaded panel

An example using MAP to define a pressure load on a plate. The three arguments to map() in the FUNCTION with ID 100 are the MAP ID, the parametric location in the row direction (between 0 and 1) and the parametric location in the column direction.
