# 5.6.1.2. DisplacementControl¶

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

Create a 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)
