OpenSeesSP not working with multiple processors (cores)

Postby amia » Thu Jul 06, 2017 1:27 am

Hi

I'm trying to run a 3D building model on OpenSeesSP, but it does not work when I use more than 1 processor. I run the model by sourcing multiple files. The error message occurs as soon as the Gravity Analysis .tcl is sourced.
Below is the error message:

"Zerolength:: sendSelf -- failed to send Materialid Slave Process Running 1
FEM_ObjectBrokerAllClasses::getNewUniaxialMaterial - 3
- no UniaxialMaterial type exists for class tag 18"

Judging from the error message, I thought a potential problem could be that the .tcl files are not created in a sequential order (also the model works if I use a single processor). So I allowed a pause between files (using the "after" command), and in each file at the end I put a "puts" command to see if the files were created (example of my run file is below) which they were in a sequential order.
Could you please let me know what may be causing the problem? (the system is set to Mumps).

Thank you
Anita

Dear Frank

Could you please let me know if the error message that I am getting is related to an error that I can fix or it is related to something that has not been incorporated in OpenSeesSP. I've been reading previous messages on the discussion board, and I think the error may be related to using a material model that has not been added to OpenSeesSP. I am using the pinching4 material model, and from my understanding this was going to be added to OpenSeesSP?

Below is the error message:
"Zerolength:: sendSelf -- failed to send Material1d Slave Process Running 1
FEM_ObjectBrokerAllClasses::getNewUniaxialMaterial - 3
- no UniaxialMaterial type exists for class tag 18"

Thank you
Anita

it is related to fact that the send/recvSelf are not implemented for the material you are using.

Hi Frank

Thank you very much for your reply.
Is it possible to add this? I believe the issue is with Pinching4 material model, because my 3D model consists of elements which have been modeled with a spring and their behavior is defined with Pinching4 material model.

Thank you
Anita
