SymbolBasis
2D/3D

SymbolBasis is an option for SetSymbols that is given as a nested list of strings that specifies the basis for the symbol names that will be generated and included in all models.

• In Modeler2D the default setting is SymbolBasis->{"T", {"X", "Y"}, {"Ei", "Ej"}, "CapitalTheta", "CapitalLambda", "d"}.
• In Modeler3D the default setting is SymbolBasis->{"T", {"X", "Y", "Z"}, {"Eo", "Ei", "Ej", "Ek"}, {"CapitalOmegax", "CapitalOmegay", "CapitalOmegaz"}, "CapitalLambda", "d"}.
• The last element in the SymbolBasis list "d" is the postfix applied to symbol names to imply a time derivative.
• See also:
SetSymbols.

Further Examples

Load the Modeler3D package and define a simple model.

SymbolBasis is used here to change all the basis strings for symbols that represent model variables.

Now all the symbol names generated by Mech use the new basis.
