GetBeamForcesForEntities Method (ICWResults)

Gets the force values for the specified force for the selected beams.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetBeamForcesForEntities( _
   ByVal NComponent As System.Integer, _
   ByVal NStepNumber As System.Integer, _
   ByVal ArraySelectedEntities As System.Object, _
   ByVal NUnits As System.Integer, _
   ByRef ErrorCode As System.Integer _
) As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWResults
Dim NComponent As System.Integer
Dim NStepNumber As System.Integer
Dim ArraySelectedEntities As System.Object
Dim NUnits As System.Integer
Dim ErrorCode As System.Integer
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.GetBeamForcesForEntities(NComponent, NStepNumber, ArraySelectedEntities, NUnits, ErrorCode)
System.object GetBeamForcesForEntities( 
   System.int NComponent,
   System.int NStepNumber,
   System.object ArraySelectedEntities,
   System.int NUnits,
   out System.int ErrorCode
System.Object^ GetBeamForcesForEntities( 
&   System.int NComponent,
&   System.int NStepNumber,
&   System.Object^ ArraySelectedEntities,
&   System.int NUnits,
&   [Out] System.int ErrorCode



Force or moment or torque load to apply to selected entities as defined by swsBeamForceType_e

Number of steps to complete a non-linear analysis; otherwise, value is 1
Selected beams
Unit as defined by swsUnit_e
Error as defined by swsResultsError_e

Return Value

Array of the values of the specified forces for the elements of the selected beams. Every element has two ends, so the output is as follows:

  • Beam element number
  • End1 force
  • End2 force
  • Beam element number
  • End1 force
  • End2 force
  • etc.
