`struct.shell.depth.factor`

Syntax

- f := struct.shell.depth.factor(p)
Get the depth factor at which stresses have been recovered. The depth equals \(Ft/2\) where \(t\) is the shell element thickness. \(F\) values equal to +1.0 or -1.0 correspond to the outer/inner shell surface. The outer surface is defined by the positive \(z\)-direction of the local shell element system. \(F\) values of 0.0 corresponds to the shell mid-surface. The depth factor can be modified with the

`structure shell recover stress`

,`structure geogrid recover stress`

, or the`structure liner recover stress`

commands.Returns: f - the depth factor at which stresses have been recovered Arguments: p - a pointer to a shell element [URGENT: DR: in above, there was :flag2:-Ft/2-, which has been “corrected”. Why was it flagged?]
