Deletes all nodes and area elements associated with selected areas (regardless of whether the nodes or elements are selected). Nodes shared by adjacent meshed areas and nodes associated with non-area elements will not be deleted. Attributes assigned as a result of AATT are maintained. In the program's response to the command, if an area, line, or keypoint is tallied as "cleared," it means either its node or element reference was deleted.
This command is also valid for rezoning. When issued during rezoning (after the REMESH,START command and before the REMESH,FINISH command), ACLEAR clears only the area generated by the AREMESH command.
