In such a case, I will stay tuned awaiting his comments :). Thanks.

Silvia, thanks for the answer. Some time ago, you suggest me to do the same thing... that is, the same workaround I am mentioning above. However, since as of version 2.2.1 the use of eval to expand and evaluate the forceBeamColumn command is not been needed anymore, I was wondering why the same thin...

An odd behavior in the recorder command

Hi Frank. I would like to know why the recorder command does not get expanded when a list of nodes is introduced as variable in it to record a set of nodes... for example, -------------------------- set nodesPerAxis "101 107 113 119 125 131 137 143 149 155 161 167 173" recorder Node -file Data/$reco...

Can you upload a figure describing how the pin connections will be modeled? I am quite sure that pin connections can be modeled --without losing any accuracy-- by just using equalDOFs... unless, of course, some rigidity is intended to be added on the pins. In such a case, they can be modeled by eith...

Re: Pin connections

You might want to use the equalDOF command. For examples of how to use it, look at the manual... the command has been very well documented and explained along the entire manual.

All load patterns are factored with the same value... so use the base shear as a reference.

[quote="simonkey"] For the latter case, if I analyze with x-dof in integrator command, I understand that the Hx pattern is factored until the desired max displacement is reached - but for the former load command, do "Hy" values also get factored?[/quote] It depends on your model... the load patterns...

Re: Pushover direction

I think you cannot at this moment... However a solution to this is to try to rotate the model... Hint: define the nodes as function of the angle of rotation so you can applied the load pattern in one of the global axes. Hope it helps. PS: According to your post, I presume you are using loadcontrol a...

Re: Using Tcl lists outside of Opensees

It is pretty simple...

In OpenSees:

set list {1 2 3 4 5}
set fid [open list.txt w]
puts $fid $list
close $fid

In MATLAB:

fid = fopen('list.txt', 'r');
list = fscanf(fid,'%f');
fclose(fid);

Regards.

Hi Frank. Thank you very much to point me out where the problem was. For the first time I have OpenSeesMP 2.2.1 compiled on my computer!

Missing a slash? This time I cannot follow you. The string "TclVid eoPlayer.o" is actually the name of a file. It was necessary to write it as so (separated) because the site considers "vid eo" as a spam.

Have I misunderstood you?

Hi Frank. By typing 'make tcl' in OpenSes/SRC/tcl, I get: make: Nothing to be done for `tcl'. I think something is definitely missing in such makefile (OpenSes/SRC/tcl/Makefile). For example, the way how commands.o, tclMain.o and mpiParameterMain.o are linked, is an information that from my point of...
