bss2

Mapdl.bss2(val1='', val2='', t='', **kwargs)

Specifies the transverse shear strain and force relationship in plane

APDL Command: BSS2 XY for beam sections.

Parameters
val1

Transverse shear strain component (γ2).

val2

Transverse shear force component (S2).

t

Temperature.

Notes

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

The BSS1 command, one of several nonlinear general beam section commands, specifies the transverse shear strain and transverse shear force relationship for plane XY 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, BSM1, BSM2, BSTQ, BSS1, BSMD, and BSTE.
