hi
I need some reliability example to help me how can do correct FORM Analyze in opensees.
please let me some complete example.
thanks.

Here is a FORM pushover analysis of a steel frame. It's a little heavy on Tcl lists and arrays.

Hello, I have read the paper: "Shape sensitivities in the reliability analysis of nonlinear frame structures". In this paper two examples are explained. I thanks that Michael had uploaded the first example involving a steel structure. I have run it and it works very well. Can you please upload the second example of a reinforced concrete structure?

I have some questions about section command.
Is possible to use the command section WFSection2d to compute DDM based sensitivity?

I have found that the information about the command Section Aggregator in the user manual and in the Sensitivity Command Manual is different. What is the correct command?

Thanks in advance.
Luis

I'm working on cleaning up the RC frame example from that paper.

Yes

I'm not sure what the differences are. I would go with what's in the user manual. Third parties wrote the sensitivity command manual, so it could be out of date.

Dear Michael Scott,

can you share with us the example of FORM analysis of 2-storey 2-bay RC frame from your paper "Shape sensitivities in the reliability analysis of nonlinear frame structures"? It would be a great help!

Thanks in advance!

Dear Michael Scott

Would you like to give me example tcl file of the structure optimization with SNOPT analysis?

Thank you

Re: Reliability - GFunEvaluator Error

Post by Technip » Tue Mar 14, 2017 8:11 am

Hi Guys,
I am looking for help on the code I have which include the Reliability Assessment.
the problem I have is invalid command GFunEvaluator when run the tcl code using source command. Sorry I could not find the way to attach the tcl file so I copy paste below. Any help on this appreciated.
Regards
Amer Ali

Hi,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I am working with some code which was written 10years or so ago which uses the commands

gFunEvaluator Basic
gradGEvaluator FiniteDifference -pert 1000

Having searched the internet it would appear that both of these commands have been updated to distinguish that they are tcl commands. From what I have found, similar commands are now written as:

functionEvaluator Tcl -file "Analyze -1"
gradientEvaluator Implicit (although i've replaced this with "FiniteDifference -pert 1000")

Could someone confirm if this is correct or if not, what are the updated versions of these commands.

Thanks,

Ross

Hello,
Thanks for this links i have searching for the steel frame tcl list from the last 2 hours. I hope now i can resolve my problem.
