Getting Started -- Lateral Loads -- Dynamic ground motion

Post by luismir » Mon Mar 03, 2014 2:49 am

I was trying to reproduce this example but when I create the load pattern (set accelSeries "Series -dt $dt -filePath BM68elc.acc -factor 1";
pattern UniformExcitation 2 1 -accel $accelSeries) I get the following error:
expected integer but got "-dt"
Could you explain me why this is happening?
Thank you very much in advance,

it is looking for a tag for the timeSeries and is finding -dt .. better way to do this is to create a timeseries and pass th tag to the pattern

instead create a TimeSeries
timeSeries Series 10 -dt $dt -filePath BM68elc.acc -factor 1
pattern UniformExcitation 2 1 -accel 10
