# Syntax

load.sin(node,dof,alpha,omega,phi)

where

Parameter | description | type | default |
---|---|---|---|

node | The acting node | integer | - |

dof | The acting dof | integer | - |

alpha | Width | float | - |

omega | Frequency | float | - |

phi | Angle | float | - |

# Examples

Create a sinusoidal load at node **1** dof **y** with magnitude *f(t)*=1.5sin(*πt*+*π*/2).
This should be equal to *f(t)*=1.5cos(*πt*).

node.sin(1, 2, 1.5, 3.14159, 0.5*3.14159)
