Modelling an Infill frame
Hi !!!!
Can any body tell me how I can model an Infill frame? I have tried using a diagonal truss element with an uniaxial material specified for the behavior of the infill wall but it is not following the envelope of the material.n There is another way to achieve that? Can somebody help me?

Errors in 3D truss modelling or analysis
Hi to all.
My goal is doing an IDA analysis on Domes (spatial/space one), but in modelling I faced errors in doing a simple linear static analysis.
Errors like these:
"WARNING BandGenLinLapackSolver::solve<> LAPACK routine returned 8
WARNING NewtonRaphson::solveCurrentStep<> the LinearSysOfEqn failed in solve <>
StaticAnalysis::analyze<>  the Algorithm failed at iteration: 0 with domain at load factor 0.1
OpenSees > analyze failed, returned: 3 error flag
done with analysis"
I made a simple 3D truss for solving this error more easily.
Can you check this model in OpenSees and solve its problem?
I know this is a big requeat from me but it's very important.
Thank you so much.

Re: Modelling an Infill frame
the solver failed because you don't have the boundary conditions correct. i suggest you look at the example online.
