element_beam_moment index force_x_first_node force_y_first_node moment_z_first_node force_x_second_node force_y_second_node moment_z_second_node ...

After the calculation, this record will be filled with the forces and moments of a beam in the local beam space coordinates $x$, $y$, $z$ (such that $z$ is perpendicular to the bending plane of the beam). For a beam in 2d, the local beam $x$, $y$, $z$ axes equal the global $x$, $y$, $z$.

The element_beam_moment record contains the forces and moments in the first node, and after that the forces and moments in the second node. The index specifies the beam element number.
