Individual moments are objects contained within the moments object. Each moment inside the moments object should be identified by a unique positive integer.

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

moments | Object | Each moment is defined by an object with properties depending on the location that the point load is applied. Moments are defined by their location type (node or member), magnitude, and load group. |

Moment (node) Properties | Type | Value | Description |
---|---|---|---|

type | String | - | The location where the moment is located. "n" = located on a node. |

node | Number | - | Contextual. Only include the property "node" if applying the moment to a node. The value should be the node ID. |

x_mag | Number | Force.Length | The magnitude of the moment about the x axis. Positive = counter-clockwise, negative = clockwise. |

y_mag | Number | Force.Length | The magnitude of the moment about the y axis. Positive = counter-clockwise, negative = clockwise. |

z_mag | Number | Force.Length | The magnitude of the moment about the z axis. Positive = counter-clockwise, negative = clockwise. |

load_group | Number | - | The load group which the point load is to be grouped to. |

Moment (member) Properties | Type | Value | Description |
---|---|---|---|

type | String | - | The location where the point load is located. "m" = located somewhere along the member. |

member | Number | - | Contextual. Only include the property "member" if applying the moment somewhere along a member. The value should be the member ID. |

position | Number | - | Contextual. Only include the property "position" if applying the moment somewhere along a member. This is the position along the member where the moment is applied, measured as a percentage along the member. |

x_mag | Number | Force.Length | The magnitude of the moment about the x axis. Positive = counter-clockwise, negative = clockwise. |

y_mag | Number | Force.Length | The magnitude of the moment about the y axis. Positive = counter-clockwise, negative = clockwise. |

z_mag | Number | Force.Length | The magnitude of the moment about the z axis. Positive = counter-clockwise, negative = clockwise. |

load_group | Number | - | The load group which the point load is to be grouped to. |
