Zero length contact element error

I am getting some error while executing the zero length element for interface simulation. Can you please tell me the reason behind and solution for it. WARNING ZeroLengthContact3D::setDomain(): Element 7 has L= 1.41421, which is greater than the tolerance The syntax for zerolength contact element is...

Cohesion in Zero Length Contact elemt

This is the command used for defining the inteface in 3D modelling

element zeroLengthContact3D $eleTag $sNode $mNode $Kn $Kt $mu $c $dir

Can you please tell me the use of c (cohesion) here and how to define its value.

Output format of stresses of an element

I have a doubt about the recording format of stresses of an element. As per xml file, it is in this format: xx-stress, yy-stress, zz-stress, xy-stress, xz-stress, yz-stress, whereas the results look like to be in this format: xx-stress, yy-stress, zz-stress, xy-stress, yz-stress, xz-stress. Please m...

Re: forces recorder in brick element

Dear Ma'am,

Thank you for reply. I have one query. I have brick element to simulate my 3D problem. Now I want to calculate the bending moment. Can you please tell me how to calculate that as force recorder only provide the shear forces.

I will wait for your reply.

Thank you

pressureIndependentMultiYield model for static loading

Can you please tell me how to use pressure Independent Multi Yield material model for the static constant loading in order to get nonlinear response. I tried to use this model, but I am getting the linear response.

maximum number of DOF

Can you please tell me the maximum number of dof that can be handled by the OPENSEES. Actually, I am having the DOF more that 1.5lakh. And I am not getting any results.

Re: recorders in loop

Actually, the value of the load has to be constant. Here is my code. I reduce its length. wipe; model BasicBuilder -ndm 3 -ndf 3; node 3 0 0 29.5; #0.5 node 4 0 0 28.5; #1.5 node 5 0 0 27.5; #2.5 node 6 0 0 26.5; #3.5 node 7 0 0 25.5; #4.5 # node for spring end is created. node 301 1 0 29.5; node 40...

Re: recorders in loop

I want to know how to apply a load in a loop so that we will have same load everytime in a loop.

I tried constant - getting same results for each loop.
Linear - results are different, but giving very high value.
Rectangular - giving same results as the constant load command

Re: recorders in loop

Actually, I want to tell you one more thing, I am using elastic isotropic material whose strength is changing in each loop. I am calculating the displacement corresponding to that strength. Hence, I use constant load pattern in each loop. Now, I don't thing so, there will a ant problem in using cons...
