Description

Basic section of an Euler-Bernoulli beam in 3D, for a homogeneous density and homogeneous elasticity, given basic material properties (Izz and Iyy moments of inertia, area, Young modulus, etc.).

This is a simple section model that assumes the elastic center, the shear center and the mass center to be all in the centerline of the beam (section origin); this is the case of symmetric sections for example. To be used with ChElementBeamEuler. This material can be shared between multiple beams.

◆ GetInertiaJxxPerUnitLength()

virtual double chrono::fea::ChBeamSectionEulerSimple::GetInertiaJxxPerUnitLength ( ) const
inlineoverridevirtual

Get the Jxx component of the inertia per unit length (polar inertia) in the Y Z unrotated reference frame of the section at centerline.

Note: it automatically follows Jxx=Jyy+Jzz for the polar theorem. Also, Jxx=density*Ixx if constant density.

Implements chrono::fea::ChBeamSectionEuler.

◆ SetKsy()

void chrono::fea::ChBeamSectionEulerSimple::SetKsy ( double  ma)
inline

Set the Timoshenko shear coefficient Ks for y shear, usually about 0.8, (for elements that use this, ex.

the Timoshenko beams, or Reddy's beams)

◆ SetKsz()

void chrono::fea::ChBeamSectionEulerSimple::SetKsz ( double  ma)
inline

Set the Timoshenko shear coefficient Ks for z shear, usually about 0.8, (for elements that use this, ex.

the Timoshenko beams, or Reddy's beams)
