Meshed Plates

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.
