If ETYPE2 is 0 or is not specified, and ELEM2 does not appear in the element attribute tables, ANSYS uses the next available (unused) location in the element attribute tables to determine the element TYPE reference number for ELEM2.

If ETYPE2 is 0 or is not specified, and ELEM2 appears in the element attribute tables, ANSYS uses ELEM2's existing element TYPE reference number for ETYPE2. (If there is more than one occurrence of ELEM2 in the element attribute tables (each with its own TYPE reference number), ANSYS uses the first ELEM2 reference number for ETYPE2.)
