This command is used to construct a Node object. It assigns coordinates and masses to the Node object.

node $nodeTag (ndm $coords) <-mass (ndf $massValues)>

$nodeTag integer tag identifying node
$coords nodal coordinates (ndm arguments)
$massValues nodal mass corresponding to each DOF (ndf arguments) (optional))

The optional -mass string allows analyst the option of associating nodal mass with the node


node 1 0.0 0.0 0.0; # x,y,z coordinates (0,0,0) of node 1

node 2 0.0 120. 0.0; # x,y,z coordinates (0,120,0) of node 2
