bendCurved

Create curved bend shape on X-Y plane

Description

Use the bendCurved object to create a curved bend shape on the X-Y plane.

Note

This shape object supports behavioral modeling. For more information, see Behavioral Models.

Creation

Description

example

bend = bendCurved creates a curved bend shape on the X-Y plane.

example

bend = bendCurved(Name=Value) sets Properties using one or more name-value arguments. For example, bendCurved(ReferencePoint=[1 1]) creates a curved bend shape with the reference point at [1 1]. Properties not specified retain their default values.

Properties

expand all

Name of the curved bend shape, specified as a character vector or a string scalar.

Example: bend = bendCurved(Name="bendcurve1")

Data Types: char

Reference point for the curved bend shape in Cartesian coordinates, specified as a two-element vector.

Example: bend = bendCurved(ReferencePoint=[1 1])

Data Types: double

Length of the curved bend shape in meters, specified as a two-element vector.

Example: bend = bendCurved(Length=[0.0500 0.0500])

Data Types: double

Width of the curved bend shape in meters, specified as a two-element vector.

Example: bend = bendCurved(Width=[0.0100 0.0100])

Data Types: double

Radius of the corner in meters, specified as a positive scalar.

Example: bend = bendCurved(CurveRadius=2)

Data Types: double

Create a curved bend shape with default properties.

bend = bendCurved
bend = 
  bendCurved with properties:

              Name: 'myCurvedbend'
    ReferencePoint: [0 0]
            Length: [0.0100 0.0100]
             Width: [0.0050 0.0050]
       CurveRadius: 0.0035

View the shape.

show(bend)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Create a curved bend shape of lengths of 10 m and 2 m, width of 2 m, and rotate it about the Z-axis by 60 degrees.

bend = bendCurved(Length=[10 2],Width=[2 2],CurveRadius=1)
bend = 
  bendCurved with properties:

              Name: 'myCurvedbend'
    ReferencePoint: [0 0]
            Length: [10 2]
             Width: [2 2]
       CurveRadius: 1

bend = rotateZ(bend,60);
show(bend)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Mesh the curved bend shape at a maximum edge length of 1 m.

     NumTriangles: 0
    NumTetrahedra: 0
         NumBasis: []
    MaxEdgeLength: []
         MeshMode: 'manual'

mesh(bend,MaxEdgeLength=1)
