# struct.pile.normal.state

Syntax

i := struct.pile.normal.state(p,iend)

Get the yield state of the coupling normal spring at end iend ∈ {1, 2} of the pile element. Return value ∈ {0, 1, 2} denotes never yielded, now yielding, or yielded in the past, respectively.

Returns: i - a value ∈ {0, 1, 2} denotes never yielded, now yielding, or yielded in the past, respectively p - a pointer to a pile element iend - end number of the pile element, iend ∈ {1, 2}
