# struct.liner.shear.state

Syntax

i := struct.liner.shear.state(p,inode)

Get the yield state of the coupling spring at node inode (inode ∈ {1, 2, 3}). Return a value i ∈ {1, 2, 3} denotes never yielded, yielding now, or yielded in the past, respectively.

Returns: i - yield state, i ∈ {1, 2, 3} denotes never yielded, yielding now or yielded in past, respectively p - a pointer to a liner element inode - node number in the element, inode ∈ {1, 2, 3}
