Parallel DisplacementControl

integrator('ParallelDisplacementControl', nodeTag, dof, incr, numIter=1, dUmin=incr, dUmax=incr)

Create a Parallel version of DisplacementControl integrator. In an analysis step with Displacement Control we seek to determine the time step that will result in a displacement increment for a particular degree-of-freedom at a node to be a prescribed value.

nodeTag (int)

tag of node whose response controls solution

dof (int)

Degree of freedom at the node, 1 through ndf.

incr (float)

First displacement increment \(\Delta U_{dof}\).

numIter (int)

Number of iterations the user would like to occur in the solution algorithm. (optional)

minIncr (float)

Min stepsize the user will allow \(\Delta U_{min}\). (optional)

maxIncr (float)

Max stepsize the user will allow \(\Delta U_{max}\). (optional)

Use this command only for parallel model.


Don’t use this command if model is not parallel, for example, parametric study.
