Re: the problem of the output is 0

Your load is Z-direction at node 4 but your displacement control is on Y-direction of node 3.

Re: Parametes from J2 plasticity model

The math equations do not render, but delta is an exponential strain hardening parameter and H is a linear strain hardening parameter https://opensees.berkeley.edu/wiki/index.php/J2_Plasticity_Material For linear strain hardening, you can set delta=0 then select H to match a desired plastic stiffnes...

Re: Starting a new analysis from the results of a previous one

If you start a second analysis after the first (and do not wipe or reset the model), the state of the model will be retained. Or you can use database commands to save/restore the model, but not all elements/materials implement the appropriate methods. https://portwooddigital.com/2020/12/22/every-end...

Re: How does OpenSees perform dynamic analysis of earthquakes and other dynamic loads at the same time?

Yes, they can be analyzed at the same time. Define concurrent pairs of load patterns and time series.

Re: Problems with eleLoad

In the RC frame script, GJ is set to 1e100 for the section and the elastic beam!!! Reduce that to something reasonable. Also, use -ele.

Re: Problems with eleLoad

Thanks for the elastic beam. You'll need to use -ele instead of ele Your boundary conditions are not sufficient. You have node 1 as 1 1 1 0 0 0 and node 2 as 0 1 0 0 0 0 - you need to fix torsion at one and and also out of plane translation at node 2 - so for node 1 use 1 1 1 1 0 0 and for node 2 us...

Re: Problems with eleLoad

Please try a simply-supported elastic beam with distributed load and see if you can get that to work.

Re: Cyclic Point Load

You can assign a sine time series to a nodal load.

timeSeries Sine tsTag ...
pattern Plain 1 $tsTag {
load nodeTag ...

This recorder option is not implemented for all elements. Which element are you using?

You have a singular section stiffness somewhere in your model.

No, you do not need to define fatigue material for the concrete.

Re: Defining plastic hinge

You can define a section then use that section along with a hinge length in the beamWithHinges elements.
