Nodes are numbered points in space.  They are used to define the geometry and connectivity of all members and finite elements in a model.  For members, a node is sometimes referred to as a joint, which has a physical meaning of the intersection of two members such as a beam and a column.  However, in this program, the term “node” is generally preferred because it carries a more general meaning.
