About Fiber Section

When I use a fiber section, is the fiber's centroid always centered with the node of the element?

When you use a fiber section, the section is divided in as many fibers as you specify. There can be at most one fiber whose centroid is the same as the sectional centroid. You can find more about fiber section at: http://opensees.berkeley.edu/OpenSees/m ... index.html
