Block Format Keyword Below are the transformation types and their description.


  1. It is recommended to use /TRANSFORM only with //SUBMODEL.
  2. This format can be used anywhere in the model.
  3. The transformations will be applied according to the order defined in the input deck.
  4. Several transformations may be applied on the same nodes group.
  5. The transformations are applied after the node group building.
  6. Transforms applied to node groups via grnd_ID only transform the nodal coordinates. Material directions for orthotropic materials and boundary conditions such as initial velocity, imposed movement are not transformed. To provide a complete transformation, the /TRANSFORM card should reference a //SUBMODEL and not a node group.
