|TILT||double||0.0||rotation about longitudinal axis|
|GROUP||string||NULL||Optionally used to assign an element to a group, with a user-defined name. Group names will appear in the parameter output file in the column ElementGroup|
The sign convention for the TILT parameter is confusing on this element. In particular, a positive TILT rotates the beam counter-clockwise about the longitudinal axis. This is the opposite sense to rotations of elements, where a positive TILT rotates the element clockwise about the longitudinal axis.
Hence, if one wanted to rotate a series of elements by 0.1 rad, one could do the following:
ROT1: ROTATE,TILT=0.1 ROT2: ROTATE,TILT=-0.1 BL: line=(ROT1,...,ROT2)The TILT value for ROT1 is the same (including the sign) as the individual TILT values one would give to all the elements represented by
