Fiber Section

Dear all I want to perform a Moment-Curvature analisis using a fiber section, but the problem is that the section is not symmetric neither in an axis nor the other. So the question is: When you create a Fiber Section and and use it in an element (for ex. from node 1 to node 2). The element 'X' axis ...

Dimension Problem

Dear FMK I have a 2D SCBF model (BasicBuilder -ndm 2 -ndf 3), supose that it is contained on the XZ plane, but I want to include a 2D plate which is orthogonal to this plane (XY plane). The question is if I have to change the BasicBuilder yo -ndm 3 -ndf 6, or it is possible keep using the current co...

Re: remove command problem

thanks, but that is not happening. The removed element is iside a brace with ten elements, wich is part of a big model. In fact I can remove the element from the beginning, and the model can run the complete ground motion.

remove element

Hi everyone, I have made a 2D model of a SCBF for studing buckling of the braces, following the model shown in the examples (SCBF Vesna's Model) . What I want to know if an element can be removed from the model, or change a property (i.e. set de E modulus to 0) according to the 'real time' results o...
