### How to do a transient analysis and split the increment into two parts?!!

Dear colleagues; I want to do a transient analysis and split the increment into two parts. The first calls for the first file (for a coarse discretization) and the second file (for a fine discretization). For that the program written below does not work, can you help me please! for {set i 0} {$ i <=...

### computing fatigue variables in Reinforcing Steel

Dear colleagues,

I am wrapping up Reinforcing Steel material with a fatigue material to use in RC column.

Please, How can i calibrate (or calculate parameters) fatigue material variables for ajusting it for this material?

I appreciate your hep.

### Compute ultimate strain of confined concrete (ecu)?

I'm looking for how to compute ultimate strain of confined concrete (ecu) with Mander model (Those equations demand a iterative procedure) !!!

I will be very grateful if you can share with me the program for the iterative calculation.

I appreciate your help.

### Compute the compressive strength of confined concrete

Dear all, I’m trying to validate a fibre FE model that analyse the cyclic pushover response of 415 RC column of Lehman et al. [1]. In a general way, I followed the modelling strategy proposed by Wang et al. [2]. To model the confined concrete, I used Mander et al. model [3] to compute the compressiv...

### R is negative in ReinforcingSteel::SetMP()

Dear all;

I had this note while running my model RC column;

R is negative in ReinforcingSteel::SetMP()

and then the convergence failed using all methods.

Any idea please!

Dear colleagues.

There is straightforward way to calculate the energy dissipated through hysteretic cycles in cyclic response using Matlab or OpenSees Script?
