Calculates the deflections of a given model using second order theory for small deflections.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
ModelModelModel for which to calculate deflectionsModel
Load CaseLCaseLoad-case from which to take the normal force which causes ThII effects. If -1 then the maximum compressive normal force of all load-cases is used.Integer
RToleranceRTolUpper limit for the iterative increment of displacements.Number
Max IterationsMaxIterMaximum number of equilibrium iterations.Integer
No Tensional NIINoTenNIIIf true NII is limited to compression (i.e. negative values). This means that no stiffening due to tension is considered.Boolean
