PrintA Command

From OpenSeesWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

This command is used to print the current global system matrix. The limitation of the command is that the system being used must be a FullGeneral

printA <-file $fileName>

$fileName (optional) name of file to which data will be sent. overwrites existing file. default is to print to stderr)


The printA command can only be issued after an analyze command; it will invoke formTangent() on the integrator and spits out the result of theSOE->getA(). As a consequence, the output is either a transformed K matrix or some transformed combination of K, C and M. what the transformation is depends on the constraints and the constraint handler;

As previously stated, the system used must be a FullGeneral.
