element('nonlinearBeamColumn', eleTag, *eleNodes, numIntgrPts, secTag, transfTag, '-iter', maxIter=10, tol=1e-12, '-mass', mass=0.0, '-integration', intType)

Create a nonlinearBeamColumn element. This element is for backward compatability.

eleTag (int)

tag of the element

eleNodes (list (int))

a list of two element nodes

numIntgrPts (int)

number of integration points.

secTag (int)

tag of section

transfTag (int)

tag of transformation

maxIter (int)

maximum number of iterations to undertake to satisfy element compatibility (optional)

tol (float)

tolerance for satisfaction of element compatibility (optional)

mass (float)

element mass density (per unit length), from which a lumped-mass matrix is formed (optional)

intType (str)

integration type (optional, default is 'Lobatto')
