Generalised Restraints

Generalised restraints allow a set of restraint conditions to be applied to a list of nodes, saving the effort of specifying restraints for individual nodes in the Nodes > Restraints table. The generalised restraints and nodal restraints work together to apply restrain to the model. Car must be taken to avoid conflicting constraints.

Member Restraint Conditions

Member Restraints allow a member to have its restraint defined at one location along its length. They allow specification of restraint in two different ways: by use of a relatively user-friendly dialog box, or by an abbreviated mnemonic text syntax.
