13.2.10. fib_sec_list_to_cmds (ops_vis)


Reuses fib_sec_list to define fiber section in OpenSees.

At present it is not possible to extract fiber section data from the OpenSees domain, this function is a workaround. The idea is to prepare data similar to the one the regular OpenSees commands (section('Fiber', ...), fiber(), patch() and/or layer()) require.

  • fib_sec_list (list) – is a list of fiber section data. First sub-list
  • defines the torsional stiffness (also) –


If you use this function, do not issue the regular OpenSees: section, Fiber, Patch or Layer commands.
