Re: Eigen analysis of a 10-story 3-bay frame

Check the connectivity of the elements in your model. You likely have a mechanism.

1. Yes, you can compile libraries from OpenSees source code, without Tcl or Python
2. There is not a way to block spam as far as I know

Re: OpenSees original framework

That's always possible. There is a quickMain project in the OpenSees/Win64/proj directory that compiles OpenSees\EXAMPLES\Example1\main.cpp as a stand alone main function.

Re: OpenSees Build with Win 10 and Visual Studio 2019 - Latest Experience

Thanks! I ran into similar issues recently with the OpenSees.exe compilation. I recorded the process, but haven't edited the video yet.

But here's a video on compiling openseespy.pyd https://youtu.be/l5-vJDZR_hA

Re: ShellMITC4 stress calculation

Yeah, even with a linear model, it's still always a good idea to use the Newton algorithm.

Same kind of thing happens with member loads on force-based beam-column elements where you need the second iteration for the loads to have an effect.

That can be done. Would you create an issue for this on GitHub? https://github.com/OpenSees/OpenSees/issues

Re: compiling OpenSeespy on windows

Change your project architecture from Debug.DLL to Debug (or Release.DLL to Release)

Re: analysis warning

Do you have beam elements mixed with quad elements in your model? That error may be due to using elements that require more DOFs/node than what you define in the 'model' command.

Re: 2D soil model with plane strain formulation

You can use quad with plane strain, either way should work

I'm working on the same thing myself. Will let you know when I get it compiled.

Re: animate_deformedshape "Error"

You may have to ops.wipe() your model before doing the animate??

I think it's the same issue as with recorders: https://wp.me/pbejzW-Si

Try putting the str around the non-string arguments, e.g., '-val',str(0.3),...

Re: End (Length) offsets

You can use rigid joint offsets in the geomTransf command.
