Plate Forces

Plates forces are returned at the meshed plate locations.

Result Key Type Description
plate_forces Object Each key within this object corresponds to the meshed plate ID ("meshed_plates") which holds an object of plate forces.
Each value is an array of force or moment values corresponding to the respective meshed node.

The plate forces object is structured as shown in the table below.

Result Key Type Unit Description
force_x Object Force per unit length Force per unit length in the meshed plate's local x-axis.
force_xy Object Force per unit length Shear Force per unit length in the meshed plate's local xy-plane.
force_xz Object Force per unit length Shear Force per unit length in the meshed plate's local xz-plane.
force_y Object Force per unit length Force per unit length in the meshed plate's local y-axis.
force_yz Object Force per unit length Shear Force per unit length in the meshed plate's local yz-plane.
moment_x Object Moment per unit length Moment per unit length about the meshed plate's local x-axis.
moment_xy Object Moment per unit length Torsional Moment per unit length about the meshed plate's local xy-plane.
moment_y Object Moment per unit length Moment per unit length about the meshed plate's local y-axis.
