FixX command

From OpenSeesWiki

This command is used to construct multiple homogeneous single-point boundary constraints for all nodes whose x-coordinate lies within a specified distance from a specified coordinate.

fixX $xCoordinate (ndf $ConstrValues) <-tol $tol>

$xCoordinate x-coordinate of nodes to be constrained
$constrValues ndf constraint values (0 or 1) corresponding to the ndf degrees-of-freedom.
0 unconstrained (or free)
1 constrained (or fixed)
$tol user-defined tolerance (optional, default = 1e-10)


fixX 0.0 1 1 1 1 1 1; # fully restrain all nodes in y-z plane at origin (x=0.0)
