PROBLEMS IN THE ANALYSIS OF A 3D SOIL COLUMN

Post by francojj » Sat May 23, 2020 9:26 am

I am making a model of a soil column in 3D, when starting the static analysis Openseespy does not perform the interactions and does not record the results.

This is how the console shows the interactions of all analyzes:

Timer :: start (hr: min: millisec): 16: 17: 375
CTestNormDispIncr :: test () - iteration: 1 current Norm: 0 (max: 0.0001, Norm deltaR: 0)
CTestNormDispIncr :: test () - iteration: 1 current Norm: 0 (max: 0.0001, Norm deltaR: 0)
CTestNormDispIncr :: test () - iteration: 1 current Norm: 0 (max: 0.0001, Norm deltaR: 0)
CTestNormDispIncr :: test () - iteration: 1 current Norm: 0 (max: 0.0001, Norm deltaR: 0)
CTestNormDispIncr :: test () - iteration: 1 current Norm: 0 (max: 0.0001, Norm deltaR: 0)
CTestNormDispIncr :: test () - iteration: 1 current Norm: 0 (max: 0.0001, Norm deltaR: 0)
CTestNormDispIncr :: test () - iteration: 1 current Norm: 0 (max: 0.0001, Norm deltaR: 0)
End of elastic static analysis

It appears, perhaps, that there is no load applied to your model? It's pretty hard to tell from the limited information you've provided. What if you use a different convergence test, e.g., NormUnbalance, do you get the same behavior?
