I am currently attempting to integrate a 3D panel code into the dynamic time marching capabilities of GEBT.
However I had some questions:
My thought processes had been to take the initial condition of the beam in the undeformed state with initial freestream conditions in the Panel code to obtain the forces and moments at each member in GEBT. However I am uncertain as to where these forces and moments are applied in the transient section of GEBT.

Hi Mann Kyo Cho,
The theta values have been changed to Wiener-Milenkovic parameters.
Please check this webpage: http://www.researchgate.net/publication/269079102_Geometric_Nonlinear_Analysis_of_Composite_Beams_using_Wiener-Milenkovi_Parameters
For the last two questions, I attached a brief GEBT flowchart and hope this may help you. I think you may need to look more into the PrescribedCondition module and Solve module in the loop for n steps in the Analysis subroutine.
