ElasticTubularJoint Element

This command is used to construct an ElasticTubularJoint element object, which models joint flexibility of tubular joints in two dimensional analysis of any structure having tubular joints.

element('ElasticTubularJoint', eleTag, *eleNodes, Brace_Diameter, Brace_Angle, E, Chord_Diameter, Chord_Thickness, Chord_Angle)
eleTag (int) unique element object tag
eleNodes (list (int)) a list of two element nodes
Brace_Diameter (float) outer diameter of brace
Brace_Angle (float) angle between brace and chord axis 0 < Brace_Angle < 90
E (float) Young’s Modulus
Chord_Diameter (float) outer diameter of chord
Chord_Thickness (float) thickness of chord
Chord_Angle (float) angle between chord axis and global x-axis 0 < Chord_Angle < 180
