`structure shell list`

command

Syntax

- structure shell list keyword <range>
Primary keywords:

apply depth-factor element-type group information force-node property resultant stress stress-principal system-local

List properties and response of each shell element in the range.

- apply
uniform applied pressure acting on the element

- depth-factor
depth factor used during stress recovery

- element-type
finite element type used

- group <slot s >
list the group assignment(s) of this element. If slot is supplied, list the group assignment for this element, if any, in slot s.

- information
lists general element information, including id and component-id numbers, connected nodes, centroids, surface area, volume, and the hide and select status

- force-node keyword
list nodal forces. By default, components are displayed in terms of the element local coordinate systems. These are the forces exerted by the nodes on the element.

- local
list forces in terms of the element local coordinate system (the default)

- global
list forces in terms of the global coordinate system

- property keyword
- density
density, \(ρ\)

- thickness
shell thickness

- thermal-expansion
thermal expansion coefficient

- anisotropic-membrane
anisotropic membrane material-stiffness coefficients {\(c^{\prime}_{11}, c^{\prime}_{12}, c^{\prime}_{13}, c^{\prime}_{22}, c^{\prime}_{23}, c^{\prime}_{33}\)}

- anisotropic-bending
anisotropic bending material-stiffness coefficients {\(c^{\prime}_{11}, c^{\prime}_{12}, c^{\prime}_{13}, c^{\prime}_{22}, c^{\prime}_{23}, c^{\prime}_{33}\)}

- material-x
vector used to determine local \(x\)-direction for the material coordinate system

- isotropic
isotropic material properties: \(E\) and \(v\), where \(E\) is Young’s modulus \([F/L^2\)\(]\) and \(v\) is Poisson’s ratio

- orthotropic-membrane
orthotropic membrane material-stiffness coefficients {\(c^{\prime}_{11}, c^{\prime}_{12}, c^{\prime}_{22}, c^{\prime}_{33}\)}

- orthotropic-bending
orthotropic membrane material-stiffness coefficients {\(c^{\prime}_{11}, c^{\prime}_{12}, c^{\prime}_{22}, c^{\prime}_{33}\)}

- resultant <nodes>
all eight stress resultant quantities last calculated with the

`structure shell recover resultants`

command. If the nodes keyword is given, the values of these quantities are supplied at each node of the element, in addition to the value at the element centroid.

- stress <nodes>
the stress state calculated with the

`structure shell recover stress`

command. If the nodes keyword is given, the values of these quantities are supplied at each node of the element, in addition to the value at the element centroid.

- stress-principal <nodes>
principal stresses calculated with the

`structure shell recover stress`

command. If the nodes keyword is given, the values of these quantities are supplied at each node of the element, in addition to the value at the element centroid.

- system-local
element local coordinate system
