gsgdata

Mapdl.gsgdata(lfiber='', xref='', yref='', rotx0='', roty0='', **kwargs)

Specifies the reference point and defines the geometry in the fiber

APDL Command: GSGDATA direction for the generalized plane strain element option.

Parameters
lfiber

Fiber length from the reference point. Defaults to 1.

xref

X coordinate of the reference point. Defaults to zero.

yref

Y coordinate of the reference point. Defaults to zero.

rotx0

Rotation of the ending plane about X in radians Defaults to zero.

roty0

Rotation of the ending plane about Y in radians Defaults to zero.

Notes

The ending point is automatically determined from the starting (reference) point and the geometry inputs. All inputs are in the global Cartesian coordinate system.
