`feblock.gauss.state`

Syntax

- is := feblock.gauss.state(bfep,i)
Get the state of the the gauss point i of the finite element block, where i is the gauss point ID (between 1 and 27). The returned state is a sum of integer values:

0 elastic

1 matrix shear currently at yield

2 matrix tension currently at yield

4 matrix shear yield in past

8 matrix tension yield in past

16 ubiquitous joint currently at shear yield

32 ubiquitous joint currently at tensile yield

64 ubiquitous joint shear yield in past

128 ubiquitous joint tensile yield in pastThese are the states corresponding to the most commonly used constitutive models. Other states are possible. See the Constitutive Models for details.

Returns: is - state indicator Arguments: bfep - feblock pointer i - gauss point ID
