Analysis Types

Example 7. 3D Frame, 3story, 3bayX, 3bayZ, ReinforcedConcrete Section & Steel WSection


 3D frame of fixed geometry
 nodes and elements are manually manually, one by one
 introduce rigid floor diaphragm
 use previouslydefined procedures to view model node numbers and elements, deformed shape, and displacement history, in 3D

 ReinforcedConcrete Section
 Steel WSection
 Elastic or Fiber Section option is a variable within one input file
 rigid diaphragm

 static pushover analysis
 static reversed cyclic analysis
 dynamic sinewave input analysis (uniform excitation)
 dynamic earthquakeinput analysis (uniform excitation)
 dynamic sinewave input analysis (multiplesupport excitation)
 dynamic earthquakeinput analysis (multiplesupport excitation)
 dynamic bidirectional earthquakeinput analysis (uniform excitation)

Example 8. generic 3D Frame, NStory NBayX, NBayZ, ReinforcedConcrete Section & Steel WSection


 3D frame geometry of variable geometry ( # stories and # bays in X and Z are variables)
 node and element definition is automated
 introduce userinput interface, the user is given the option as to what to view in model
