Visualization control parameters

@FRAME_NAME {FrameName}
@COMMENTS {CommentText}


This section defines the parameters that control the visualization of the entire model.


  1. If if possible to select a frame to be used as basis the visualization.
  2. The visualization phase allows the representation of a number of vector fields that are superimposed to the instantaneous configuration of the system. To enable the visualization of a specific vector field, keyword @VECTOR_FIELD_DEFINITION must appear. Each vector field is defined by its type, VfdType, which can take the following values
    • FORCES: visualization of the forces in structural components.
    • MOMENTS: visualization of the moments in structural components.
    • STRAINS: visualization of the strains in structural components.
  3. If the visualization of a specific vector field has been requested, scaling factor svfd can be defined to scale the graphical magnitude of the corresponding vector field (Default value: svfd = 0.125). The vector field will be drawn using color ClrName.
  4. It is possible to attach comments to the definition of the object; these comments have no effect on its definition.
