Retrieves a value and stores it as a scalar parameter
or part of an array parameter.
Par
The name of the resulting parameter. See *SET for name restrictions.
Entity
Entity keyword. Valid keywords are NODE, ELEM, KP, LINE, AREA, VOLU, etc., as shown for
Entity
= in the tables below.
ENTNUM
The number or label for the entity (as shown for ENTNUM
= in the tables below). In some cases, a zero
(or blank) ENTNUM
represents all entities
of the set.
Item1
The name of a particular item for the given entity.
Valid items are as shown in the Item1
columns
of the tables below.
IT1NUM
The number (or label) for the specified Item1
(if any). Valid IT1NUM
values are as shown in the IT1NUM
columns
of the tables below. Some Item1
labels
do not require an IT1NUM
value.
Item2
, IT2NUM
A second set of item labels and numbers to further qualify the item for which data are to be retrieved. Most items do not require this level of information.
*GET retrieves a value for a specified item and stores the value as a scalar parameter, or as a value in a usernamed array parameter. An item is identified by various keyword, label, and number combinations. Usage is similar to the *SET command except that the parameter values are retrieved from previously input or calculated results. For example, *GET,A,ELEM,5,CENT,X returns the centroid xlocation of element 5 and stores the result as parameter A. *GET command operations, along with the associated Get functions return values in the active coordinate system unless stated otherwise. A Get function is an alternative inline function that can be used to retrieve a value instead of the *GET command (see Using Inline Get Functions for more information).
Both *GET and *VGET retrieve information from the active data stored in memory. The database is often the source, and sometimes the information is retrieved from common memory blocks that the program uses to manipulate information. Although POST1 and POST26 operations use a *.rst file, *GET data is accessed from the database or from the common blocks. Get operations do not access the *.rst file directly. For repeated gets of sequential items, such as from a series of elements, see the *VGET command.
Most items are stored in the database after they are calculated and are available anytime thereafter. Items are grouped according to where they are usually first defined or calculated. Preprocessing data will often not reflect the calculated values generated from section data. Do not use *GET to obtain data from elements that use calculated section data, such as beams or shells. Most of the general items listed below are available from all modules. Each of the sections for accessing *GET parameters are shown in the following order:
The *GET command is valid in any processor.

a modal analysis that creates complex solutions (DAMP, QRDAMP, or
UNSYM eigensolvers) returned value is calculated from the complex
frequencies. If retrieved after a spectrum analysis, returned value is the effective damping ratio. Not a function of direction. Also retrievable following a harmonic analysis or transient analysis with modesuperposition. 
For all items except PFACT and MCOEF (as noted above), only the first 10000 values corresponding to significant modes will be returned.
The MODE file must be available to retrieve items PFACT and
MCOEF with specified Item2
. If Item2
is not specified, the last calculated value will
be returned.
All values retrieved correspond to the first load step values.
For a Campbell diagram analysis (multistep modal), *GET with Entity
