bsm1

Mapdl.bsm1(val1='', val2='', t='', **kwargs)

Specifies the bending curvature and moment relationship in plane XZ for

APDL Command: BSM1 beam sections.

Parameters
val1

Curvature component (κ1).

val2

Bending moment component (M1).

t

Temperature.

Notes

The behavior of beam elements is governed by the generalized- stress/generalized-strain relationship of the form:

The BSM1 command, one of several nonlinear general beam section commands, specifies the bending curvature and moment for plane XZ of a beam section. The section data defined is associated with the section most recently defined (via the SECTYPE command).

Unspecified values default to zero.

Related commands are BSAX, BSM2, BSTQ, BSS1, BSS2, BSMD, and BSTE.
