get strain and strainrate

Postby Gholamreza » Wed Jan 10, 2018 8:38 am

Hello Frank and other Developers,
I'd like to know how OpenSees get the Strain or StrainRate from a element and pass it to a material ?
My goal is to write a code in order to get the acceleration and pass it to a material but before that I need to know how OpenSees works for passing the Strain or StrainRate ?
Is there any documentation for that ?

The best way is to follow the code. Did you download all the OpenSees source files in your computer?

OpenSees does not get from element and provide to materials .. it is the elemenets that compute it and send it to their copies of the materials .. look at source code for any element that takes a material=, e.g. Truss.
