The following parameters are defined in the segment of SAOSYS pre-processor commands: the problem title /TITLE; finite element formulation /EFORM (Ef_E denotes equilibrium finite elements); the degree of freedom of the node NDOF (ND_PLANE is the 2D problem with three freedom degrees of the node); element materials MP (here, elasticity modulus E and the tensile steel strength depending on the yield stress Ry should be defined); finite elements' sets R (here, sec is the cross-section type, sid is the default cross-section number in assortment and sel is the cross-section selection flag).
