GeometricStructuralICs Properties

Initial displacement and velocity over a region

A GeometricStructuralICs object contains a description of the initial displacement and velocity over a geometric region for a transient structural model. A StructuralModel container has a vector of GeometricStructuralICs objects in its InitialConditions.StructuralICAssignments property.

To set initial conditions for your structural model, use the structuralIC function.

Properties

expand all

Geometric region type, returned as 'Face', 'Edge', or 'Vertex' for a 2-D model or 3-D model, or 'Cell' for a 3-D model.

Data Types: char

Geometric region ID, returned as a vector of positive integers. Find the region IDs using pdegplot, as shown in Create Geometry and Remove Face Boundaries or STL File Import.

Data Types: double

Initial displacement, returned as a numeric vector or function handle. For details, see structuralIC.

Data Types: double | function_handle

Initial velocity, returned as a numeric vector or function handle. For details, see structuralIC.
