steps to compute plastic rotation

Post by caosasa » Sat Oct 27, 2012 7:03 pm

Dear Vesna and other users,
if i want to compute the plastic rotation of nonlinearbeamcolumn element,
how can i caputure it with the sectiondeformations?
for an nonlinearbeamcolumn element with 5 Nps,
do i have to output all the sectiondeformations first, then split the recorder
files to compute the rotation?
or can i compute the rotation first with some orders, then output the rotation
