roty#

Query.roty(n)#

Returns y-component of rotational displacement at a node.

Y-component of rotational displacement at node n.

Parameters
nint

Node number

Returns
float

Rotational displacement of the node.

Examples

This example has been adapted from the example script Generating and Extracting Rotational Displacement. We create a square of shell material, apply a displacement perpendicular to the plane of the material, and then solve.

Then we can use queries.roty to get the y-component rotational displacement at the middle node on the deformed edge.
