This command is used to obtain the same element quantities as those obtained from the element recorder at a particular time step.

eleResponse $eleTag $arg1 $arg2

$eleTag integer tag identifying element
$arg1, $arg2 same arguments as those specified in element recorder. These arguments are specific to the type of element being used.


For a simple truss example if these are the recorder commands used:

recorder Element -time -ele 1 2 3 -file a.out axialForce

recorder Element -time -ele 1 2 3 -file b.out material stress

then these are the corresponding eleResponse commands

set a [eleResponse 1 forces]

set b [eleResponse 1 material stress]
