chrono::fea::ChBeamSectionEulerEasyCircular Class Reference
Description
A simple specialization of ChBeamSectionEuler if you just need the simplest model for a beam with circular centered section, with uniform elasticity and uniform density.
This section automatically itializes at construction:
 elasticity as circular section
 inertia as circular section
 damping: none  you can set it later
