Element function for a 6 DOF traction-compression bar element.


The bar1 element corresponds to the standard linear interpolation for axial traction-compression. The element DOFs are the standard translations at the two end nodes (DOFs .01 to .03).

In a model description matrix, element property rows for bar1 elements follow the standard format (see section 7.16).

Isotropic elastic materials are the only supported (see m_elastic).

For supported element properties see p_beam. Currently, bar1 only uses the element area A with the format
