This card depends on the element type. Refer to the element library list. However, the generation of the elements are the same. The following table shows a general generation block. Skip this block if NUMEG.EQ.0. The latest definition of element overrides the previous one. Terminate the element generation with a blank card.
1-5 Element number
6-10 Number of subsequent generation lines
Enter 0 if no generation is required
11-15 Node number of the first local node
16-.. Other node numbers connected to the element
1-5 First element of the already existed pattern
6-10 Last element of the already existed pattern
11-15 Already existed pattern element number increment
16-20 Number of times required to repeat the pattern
21-25 Uniform node number increment
EQ.0: Variable node increments will follow
25-30 Element number increment
31-.. Variable node increments (NINC(K),K=1,NEN)
The node numbers should be entered in the specified order of the local node and in a sequence that produces a positive area or volume.
