If you have a script you think might be useful to others post it
here. Hopefully we will be able to get the most useful of these incorporated in the manuals.

there is a command in the manual named "element beamcolumn joint" in which we should define 13 mat tag,apart from this command, is there any other element command to define beam-column joint ? actually,previous manuals may have such a command.
I mean a joint element with 5 nodes that i have seen in the articles.

Hi Silvia:
