5.6. integrator commands

integrator(intType, *intArgs)

This command is used to construct the Integrator object. The Integrator object determines the meaning of the terms in the system of equation object Ax=B.

The Integrator object is used for the following:

  • determine the predictive step for time t+dt
  • specify the tangent matrix and residual vector at any iteration
  • determine the corrective step based on the displacement increment dU
intType (str) integrator type
intArgs (list) a list of integrator arguments

The following contain information about available intType:
