The buckling results are only returned when a buckling analysis is requested in the settings object. Otherwise the string "disabled" is returned.
|buckling||Object||Contains the buckling results for the analysis.|
The buckling results object is structured as shown in the table below.
|message||String||-||A status message for the buckling solution.|
|factor||Number||-||The lowest buckling factor of the structure. A number less than 1 indicates buckling is occuring.|
|effective_lengths_y||Object||Length||Effective Length in each member's local y-axis.|
|effective_lengths_z||Object||Length||Effective Length in each member's local z-axis.|
|critical_loads||Object||Force||The critical load of each member (i.e. the load that will induce buckling in the member). If the member is not in compression then a string "NC" will be returned meaning "No Compression".|
|max_translation_member||Number||-||The ID of the member that has the maximum buckling translation.|
|max_rotation_member||Number||-||The ID of the member that has the maximum buckling rotation.|
