Assigns mesh smoothing to explicit dynamic elements that use the ALE formulation.
Label identifying the option to be performed:
Add smoothing controls (default).
Delete smoothing controls.
List smoothing controls.
Simple average smoothing weight factor (default = 0).
Volume weighted smoothing weight factor (default = 0).
Equipotential smoothing weight factor (default = 0).
Equilibrium smoothing weight factor (default = 0).
EFAC is only applicable to PLANE162 elements.
Start time for ALE smoothing (default = 0).
End time for ALE smoothing (default = 1e20).
Mesh smoothing specified by the EDALE command is only applicable to PLANE162 and SOLID164 elements that are flagged
to use the ALE formulation (KEYOPT(5) = 1). To activate the ALE formulation,
you must specify at least one smoothing weight factor on this command
and the number of cycles between advection (
NADV) on the EDGCALE command. See Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian
Formulation in the ANSYS LS-DYNA User's Guide for more information.
The EDALE command is also valid in PREP7.
Distributed ANSYS Restriction This command is not supported in Distributed ANSYS.
