Parameters

_index
Type: System..::.Int32
Index (must be unique)
_StartingNode
Type: Frame3D..::.SuperNode
Starting node object
_EndingNode
Type: Frame3D..::.SuperNode
Ending node object
_PointInPlaneXY
Type: MathLib..::.Geometry..::.XYZ
A 3d point in global coordinate system that lies on the plane xy of the local system of the element
_Material
Type: Frame3D..::.Material
Material object
_Section
Type: Frame3D..::.FrameElementSection
Section object
_StartingNode_Releases
Type: Frame3D..::.MemberReleases
Released dofs of starting node
_EndingNode_Releases
Type: Frame3D..::.MemberReleases
Released dofs of ending node
_LumpedMassMatrix
Type: System..::.Boolean
True to create a lumped mass matrix during dynamic analysis
_ConsiderShearEffect
Type: System..::.Boolean
True, if shear work will be considered (Timoshenko element)

Remarks

It is used for the placement of the member about its longitudinal axis (x)
