This command is used to construct a UniaxialSection object which uses a previously-defined UniaxialMaterial object to represent a single section force-deformation response quantity.


section Uniaxial $secTag $matTag $quantity



$secTag unique section tag
$matTag tag of uniaxial material
$quantity the force-deformation quantity to be modeled by this section object. One of the following strings is used:
P Axial force-deformation
Mz Moment-curvature about section local z-axis
Vy Shear force-deformation along section local y-axis
My Moment-curvature about section local z-axis
Vz Shear force-deformation along section local z-axis
T Torsion Force-Deformation
