chrono::fea::ChBeamSectionEulerEasyRectangular Class Reference

## Description

A simple specialization of ChBeamSectionEuler if you just need the simplest model for a rectangular centered beam, with uniform elasticity and uniform density.

This section automatically itializes at construction:

• elasticity as rectangular section
• inertia as rectangular section
• damping: none - you can set it later
