uz

Query.uz(n)

Returns z-component of structural displacement at a node.

Z-component of structural displacement at node n.

Parameters

n (int) – Node number

Return type

float

Returns

float – Displacement of node

Examples

In this example we create a simple block of 6 cubic elements, fix one end in place, and then bend the other perpendicular to it. We can then examine the displacement of one of the nodes in the z-direction at the deformed end (node number 7).
