 | ''​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.

 | ''​gravity''​ | 1x3 vector | Loads due to gravity. Values represent the components of the gravitational acceleration in ''​x''​-,​ ''​y''​-,​ and ''​z''​-direction (in unit m/​s<​sup>​2</​sup>​).

 | ''​loadsteps''​ | integer | Number of load steps used in the simulation and visualization. If not specified, the default number of 10 load steps is used. For creating smooth plots and visualizations,​ you may want to increase this number. For optimization purposes, you may want to reduce this number to increase computational speed. For well-conditioned problems, a single load step is still feasible. For ill-conditioned problems (involving large loads, large prescribed displacements,​ or buckling ), a larger number of load steps is required for the simulation to converge. | | ''​loadsteps''​ | integer | Number of load steps used in the simulation and visualization.
