Structural model object

A `StructuralModel`

object contains
information about a structural analysis problem: the geometry, material properties,
damping parameters, body loads, boundary loads, boundary constraints, superelement
interfaces, initial displacement and velocity, and mesh.

To create a `StructuralModel`

object, use `createpde`

and specify `'structural'`

as its first
argument .

`geometryFromEdges` | Create 2-D geometry from decomposed geometry matrix |

`geometryFromMesh` | Create 2-D or 3-D geometry from mesh |

`importGeometry` | Import 2-D or 3-D geometry from STL data |

`structuralBC` | Specify boundary conditions for structural model |

`structuralSEInterface` | Specify structural superelement interface for component mode synthesis |

`structuralBodyLoad` | Specify body load for structural model |

`structuralBoundaryLoad` | Specify boundary loads for structural model |

`structuralIC` | Set initial conditions for a transient structural model |

`structuralProperties` | Assign structural properties of material for structural model |

`solve` | Solve heat transfer, structural analysis, or electromagnetic analysis problem |

`reduce` | Reduce structural model |
