Meshed Plates are the 2D elements (triangular or quadrilateral) that make up a plate. Every meshed plate has a "parent plate" which it originated from.

Input | Type | Description |
---|---|---|

meshedPlates | Object | Each plate is defined by an object with properties. Plates are defined by the nodes making them up (3-4), their parent plate, and their rotation. |

Meshed Plate Properties | Type | Unit | Description |
---|---|---|---|

node_A | Number | - | The first node of the meshed plate. Meshed plates can be triangular or quadrilateral elements. |

node_B | Number | - | The second node of the meshed plate. Meshed plates can be triangular or quadrilateral elements. |

node_C | Number | - | The third node of the meshed plate. Meshed plates can be triangular or quadrilateral elements. |

node_D | Number | - | The fourth node of the meshed plate. Meshed plates can be triangular or quadrilateral elements. Set this to null if the meshed plate is triangular (i.e. no fourth node). |

parent_plate | Number | - | The id of the plate which the meshed plate originated from. |

rotZ | Number | Angle (Degrees) | Rotation of plate about the plate's local Z (normal) axis in degrees. |
