The Ansys Header Section

The Ansys header section comes first. It contains two or three lines plus comments.

        /BATCH,LIST
        /SHOW,cylind1,f33,1
        /TITLE, Axial load on cylinder, cylind1.a
          ! 2in dia on top, 2in dia on bottom, 12in high
          ! axial node numbering
          ! exact answer is
The first line spceifies batch mode, but can also be included for interactive mode. The second line is only used to produce a postscript plot. The first option is the first name of the plot file to which .f33 will automatically be appended. The TITLE line is the information that is printed on the plot. Your name, the date, and the file name must appear here. The remaining three lines are comments because they start with an exclamation mark.
