Structural Analysis of a Beam with Python
Too Long; Didn't ReadPlaneSections is a lightweight finite element beam bending library built on OpenSeesPy. PlaneSection library has four core modules which are as follows: The Builder module is used to create the beam and beam elements. The Analysis module and the Diagram module are used to plot the beam model. The Postprocess module plots the responses of the beam from the analysis, including force diagrams and deflections. This article is about how to create a simple beam model and plot its shear force and bending moment diagram using a python library created by csbloom.
