I have some problems with modeling a simple short cantilever steel column (as a shear link element) as follow:
If I make a use of nD Material like J2plasticity and nD Fiber, the elastic stiffness is correct but the yield point is not reachable (3D model) and we have convergence or flexibility error.
WARNING: numeric analysis returns 1 -- Umfpackgenlinsolver::solve
WARNING AcceleratedNewton::solveCurrentStep() -the LinearSysOfEqn failed in solve()
StaticAnalysis::analyze() - the Algorithm failed at iteration: 0 with domain at load factor 5
OpenSees > analyze failed, returned: -3 error flag
How can I work correctly with J2plsticity for modeling in OpenSees?
Can I model it in 2D form?
