element name is PySimple1
I have studied this paper "Boulanger, R. W., Curras, C. J., Kutter, B. L., Wilson, D. W., and Abghari, A. (1999). "Seismic soil-pile-structure interaction experiments and analyses." Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, ASCE, 125(9): 750-759." and I have seen the arrangement.
but I can't understand how the parameters that we Assign for PySimple1 place in that arrangement.
