beam_connectivity Module

Defines the faces for representing the PBARL/PBEAML cards as 3D objects instead of just 1D elements.

These functions intentionally do not handle offsets. Node 1/2 should be the offset/actual coordinates.

The following shapes are fully supported:
  • ROD

  • TUBE

  • BAR

  • BOX

  • L

  • H

  • I1 (I1 is handled correctly because it’s doubly symmetric)

  • T

  • T1

  • T2

  • Z

  • HEXA

The following shapes don’t do the shear center correctly:
  • CHAN

  • CHAN1

  • I

  • HAT

The following shapes aren’t supported:
  • CROSS

  • TUBE2

  • CHAN2 (will be a shear center issue)

  • BOX1 (will be a shear center issue)

  • HAT1 (will be a shear center issue)

  • DBOX (will be a shear center issue)
