Shell Recorders Variabl

Post by katterineac » Sun Nov 08, 2020 10:17 am

Hi, I am using ShellMITC4 elements in OpenSees and I have these recorders:

recorder Element -file folderResults/forces.out -time -ele 1 2 3 4 forces
recorder Element -file folderResults/stresses.out -time -ele 1 2 3 4 stresses
recorder Element -file folderResults/strains.out -time -ele 1 2 3 4 strains

But i don't know how OpenSees builds the .out file, I mean in which order OpenSees writes the results. I just see numbers and numbers but i dont understand the meaning of each number.

Please help :(
