Solver element properties
When in a Solver View, solver element properties are displayed in the Properties Window as shown below. Only certain of these can be edited; properties that are dimmed are derived and cannot be changed directly.
|Active||When this is set to False the solver element is inactive in the analysis. Only certain member types (braces, analysis elements) can be made inactive.|
|Type||The type of the solver element|
|Fabrication||The fabrication type of the solver element.|
|Construction||The construction type of the solver element.|
|Material||The solver element material.|
Defines the element orientation about its local x axis.
When gamma = 0, the local z lies in the plane created by the local x axis and the global z axis.
|Length||The solver element length.|
|Fx, Fy, Fz||These define the translational end releases at end 1.|
|Mx, My, Mz||These define the rotational end releases at end 1.|
|Fx, Fy, Fz||These define the translational end releases at end 2.|
|Mx, My, Mz||These define the rotational end releases at end 2.|
