`Oper`

Operation to perform:

—

Interpolate

**TB**-based material parameters in the linear or natural log scale.—

Set the interpolation algorithm to use for the subtable (or table if the material data table has only one subtable) being defined.

—

Set the default value of the user-defined field variable used for interpolation (if no value was specified).

—

Set the maximum and minimum bounds for individual field variables.

—

Scale the field variables before interpolation.

—

Enable/disable caching of interpolated data for performance.

`Oper`

`Par1`

Independent variable, which can be any field variable specified via the

**TBFIELD**command.`Par2`

Index of any material parameter specified via the

**TBDATA**command.`Par3`

Scale to use for the independent variable. Valid options are LINEAR (linear) or LOG (logarithmic).

`Par4`

Scale to use for the dependent variable (the material parameter specified via

). Valid options are LINEAR (linear) or LOG (logarithmic).`Par2`

`Oper`

`Par1`

Interpolation algorithm:

LINEAR – Linear 1-D / 2-D (default). LMUL – Linear-multivariate interpolation (multidimensional). RBAS – Radial-basis interpolation (multidimensional). NNEI – Nearest-neighbor (multidimensional). = LINEAR is available for all material models. The remaining options are limited to a subset of material models. For more information, see Material Model Support for Interpolation in the Mechanical APDL Material Reference.`Par1`

`Oper`

`Par1`

The field variable on which the operation is being applied.

`Par2`

Default value of the field variable for which an initial value was not specified.

`Oper`

`Par1`

The field variable on which the operation is being applied.

`Par2`

Lower bound of the field variable.

`Par3`

Upper bound of the field variable.
