beamwithhinge element example

Post by zxhuang » Fri Jun 17, 2011 7:19 am

Hi,everyone.I would like to do a pushover analysis of a steel 2D frame structure, I need to get the beam hinge rotation at several location.So I think the beamwithhinge element may suit for my work.Could anyone send me an example of model with "beamwithhinge" element. In addition, I have read the example loading at " ... Frame",but when doing dynamic analysis using this approach,will not convergence.
Looking forward to your reply.thank you!

how is it going?
yeah,I meet the same problem.
maybe you could revise the tol and increase the iter.
and shorter the displacement control step.
and, the above does not work,expecially when the step is too large.
