recorder Element and section

Post by dangdang » Fri Jun 05, 2020 11:44 pm

Hi guys. I'm trying to draw Force-Defromation graph.
so I used

recorder Element -file Data/ForceColSec1.out -time -ele 1 section 1 force;
recorder Element -file Data/DefoColSec1.out -time -ele 1 section 1 deformation;

but I can't understand format of force and deformation file. Can you explane this one ?

My model is ndm 2 ,ndf 3 and cantilever column.
Thanks for your help. :)
