animate_fiberResponse2D command

postprocessing.Get_Rendering.animate_fiberResponse2D(Model, LoadCase, element, section,
LocalAxis='y', InputType='stress', skipStart=0, skipEnd=0, rFactor=1,
outputFrames=0, fps=24, Xbound=[], Ybound=[])

Animates fibre stress or strain distribution along the local Z or Y-axis of a 2D fiber section. The local axis appears on the x axis, while the fiber response appears on the y axis. The animation object should be stored as an variable in order for the animation to run.

ModelName (str) Name of the model to read data from output database, created with createODB() command.
LoadCaseName (str) Name of the subfolder with load case output data.
element (int) Tag of the element where the section to be plotted is located.
section (int) Tag of the section to be plotted.
LocalAxis (str) Local axis of the section to appear on the x axis. (optional, default is “Y”)
InputType (str) Type of the fiber response to be plotted, possible values are "stress" or "strain". (optional, default is “stress”)
skipStart (int) If specified, this many datapoints will be skipped from the data start. (optional, default is 0)
skipEnd (int) If specified, this many datapoints will be skipped from the data end. (optional, default is 0)
rFactor (int) If specified, only every “x” frames will be output by this factor. For example, if x=2, every other frame will be used in the animation. (optional, default is 0)
outputFrames (int) The number of frames to be included after all other reductions. (optional, default is 0)
fps (str) Number of animation frames to be displayed per second. (optional, default is 24)
Xbound (list) ``[xmin, xmax]` The domain of the chart. (optional, default is 1.1 the max and min values)
Ybound (float) ``[ymin, ymax]` The domain of the chart. (optional, default is 1.1 the max and min values)

Examples:

ani = animate_fiberResponse2D("TwoSpan_Bridge", "Dynamic_GM1", 101, 2)
Animates the fiber stress (default) distribution of section 2 in element 101 of structure by reading data from TwoSpan_Bridge_ODB with a sub-folder Dynamic_GM1 at the last analysis step (default).
