The general form of the overall component record is:

name, compid, codeid, data, nodes

where:

name

is the component name obtained from the PDS to stress interface symbol map

compid

is a label uniquely identifying the component (much the same as the segment ID uniquely identifies a segment)

codeid

is the label pointing back to a particular CODE record

data

is a list of component attributes defined by you in the options file that apply to the component as a whole and are not specific to the component type. These attributes may come from either the segment or component entities.

nodes

is the node list for the component. The node list defines the node numbers for each node of the component. The number of nodes in the node list is a function of the component type. The nodes are ordered in the list so that the first corresponds to connect point 1, the second to connect point 2 and so on. Refer to the Node Numbering Conventions section for more information.
