3.7.4: Nodal Displacements
Fig. 18.104.22.168: Simply supported beam under axial and transverse point-load
The “NodeDisp”-component lists the displacements of nodes for the load cases specified via the “LCase”-input. Nodes can be selected via position or index. In case mising input there, results for all nodes will be listed in the order of the corresponding node indexes.
Two lists consisting of vectors make up the output at the plugs “Trans” and “Rot”. For each node there is a vector which contains the three nodal translations or rotations (see fig. 22.214.171.124) respectively. A list of nodal displacements is displayed: vectors with translations and rotations for each node and load case. The vectors refer to the global coordinate system. Their units are meter or radiant. A positive rotation say about the global X-axis means that the node rotates counter clockwise for someone who looks at the origin of the coordinate system with the X-axis pointing towards him or her.
