This file contains the class definition for SAWSMaterial. SAWSMaterial provides the implementation of a one-dimensional hysteretic model develeped as part of the CUREe Caltech wood frame project.
|uniaxialMaterial SAWS $tag $F0 $FI $DU $S0 $R1 $R2 $R3 $R4 $alph $beta|
|$matTag||integer tag identifying material|
|$F0||Intercept strength of the shear wall spring element for the asymtotic line to the envelope curve F0 > FI > 0|
|$FI|| Intercept strength of the spring element for the pinching branch of the hysteretic
curve. (FI > 0).
|$DU||Spring element displacement at ultimate load. (DU > 0).|
|$S0||Initial stiffness of the shear wall spring element (S0 > 0).|
|$R1|| Stiffness ratio of the asymptotic line to the spring element envelope curve. The
slope of this line is R1 S0. (0 < R1 < 1.0).
|$R2|| Stiffness ratio of the descending branch of the spring element envelope curve. The
slope of this line is R2 S0. ( R2 < 0).
|$R3|| Stiffness ratio of the unloading branch off the spring element envelope curve. The
slope of this line is R3 S0. ( R3 1).
|$R4|| Stiffness ratio of the pinching branch for the spring element. The slope of this line
is R4 S0. ( R4 > 0).
|$alpha||Stiffness degradation parameter for the shear wall spring element. (ALPHA > 0).|
|$beta||Stiffness degradation parameter for the spring element. (BETA > 0).|
