# LINSPL

Returns the interpolated value or n-th derivative of the interpolated value of Reference_Spline element.

## Format

LINSPL(x,z,id) or LINSPL(x,0,id,n)

## Arguments

`x`- The independent variable of the curve.
`z`- The independent variable z of the surface. Use
`z`=0 if only one curve is being defined. `id`- The ID of the Reference_Spline element.
`n`- The order of the derivative desired. Not applicable with surfaces. Must lie between 0 and 2.

## Example

```
<Force_Scalar_TwoBody
id = "301001"
type = "Force"
i_marker_id = "10506"
j_marker_id = "10706"
val_expression = "LINSPL(DM(10503,10703),0,301002)"
/>
<Reference_Spline
id = "301002"
num_xy_pair = "5"
linear_extrap = "FALSE">
