Structural element

Structural elements are used in structural analysis to split a complex structure into simple elements. Within a structure, an element cannot be broken down (decomposed) into parts of different kinds (e.g., beam or column).[1]

Structural elements can be lines, surfaces or volumes.[2]

Line elements:

Surface elements:

Volumes:

  • Axial, shear and bending loads for all three dimensions
