Questions about element zerolength

Post by xqqer » Tue Apr 28, 2020 12:09 am

Distinguished predecessors:
I'm a beginner of this software,and I have some questions that I hope you can answer for me.
I wonder what is the difference between the use and effect of element zerolength and element zerolengthND and element zerolengthSection in opensees?Because I want to use bbarbrick to build the concrete unit and truss to simulate the steel bar, but I am not sure which one I could use to simulate the bond slip between them.I hope that some seniors with knowledge in this field can give me answers or directions.
I would appreciate it if you could answer my questions or point out the direction.
