Linear static analysis. Parameter nsteps indicates the number of loading cases. Problem supports multiple load cases, where number of load cases correspods to number of solution steps, individual load vectors are formed in individual time-steps. However, the static system is assumed to be the same for all load cases. For each load case an auxiliary time-step is generated with time equal to load case number.
The sparselinsolverparams parameter describes the sparse linear solver attributes and is explained in section 5.1. Can be used in parallel mode. The input record must be the same for all processors. At present, parallel version requires PETSc module.
