rotz#

Query.rotz(n)#

Returns z-component of rotational displacement at a node.

Z-component of rotational displacement at node n.

Parameters:
nint

Node number

Returns:
float

Rotational displacement of the node.

Examples

This example has been adapted from the example script Generating and Extracting Rotational Displacement. We create a square of shell material, apply a displacement perpendicular to the plane of the material, and then solve.

Then we can use queries.rotz to get the z-component rotational displacement at the middle node on the deformed edge.
