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')
