Mass density.


The BSMD command, one of several nonlinear general beam section commands, specifies the mass density (assuming a unit area) for a beam section. The value specified is associated with the section most recently defined (via the SECTYPE command).

Related commands are BSAX, BSM1, BSM2, BSTQ, BSS1, BSS2, and BSTE.

For complete information, see Using Nonlinear General Beam Sections in the Mechanical APDL Structural Analysis Guide.
