Specifies the transverse shear strain and force relationship in plane XZ for beam sections.
Transverse shear strain component ().
Transverse shear force component ().
The behavior of beam elements is governed by the generalized-stress/generalized-strain relationship of the form:
The BSS1 command, one of several nonlinear general beam section commands, specifies the transverse shear strain and transverse shear force relationship for plane XZ of a beam section. The section data defined is associated with the section most recently defined (via the SECTYPE command).
Unspecified values default to zero.
