+ | | ''rot'' | 1x4 vector | Prescribed rotation. Values represent the target orientation of the node in 3-D space, according to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotation_formalisms_in_three_dimensions#Euler_axis_and_angle_.28rotation_vector.29|axis-angle notation]]. The first value represents the rotation angle (in radians) and the second to fourth values the normalized axis of rotation, all with respect to the global frame. Note that this input complete defines and constrains the orientation of the node, i.e. no other simultaneous rotations of the node are possible. | | ||

| ''silent'' | ''true'' | Activation of 'silent' mode of SPACAR Light. In the silent mode, the input arguments (''nodes'', ''elements'', ''nprops'', ''eprops'', ''rls'') are not validated and not checked for errors (improving speed). Also, visualization after simulation is turned off. This feature can be useful when e.g. running a lot of SPACAR Light simulations in an optimization or iteration loop. | | | ''silent'' | ''true'' | Activation of 'silent' mode of SPACAR Light.

- | | ''calcbuck'' | ''true'' | Calculation of buckling loads. Multipliers with respect to the combined applied load are returned. Input displacements cannot be used with this option. It is recommended to only apply a single force or moment to the system. Note that the loads ''nprops(i).force'' and ''nprops(i).moment'' are applied in (linearly increasing) steps: they only reach the user-specified value at the last step. The multipliers are calculated with respect to the current load at each of these steps. | | + | | ''calcbuck'' | ''true'' | Calculation of buckling loads.

Whenever input displacements or rotations are used, the multipliers are also with respect to the equivalent reaction loads.
