Plot mode shapes

Post by Edwardsimm » Sat May 26, 2018 5:42 am

Hi i am having trouble plotting mode shapes, I hope someone can help,

So far this is the code I am using for setting a plot of a multi-storey frame:

set h 120
recorder display “Mode Shape 1” 10 10 500 500
prp $h $h 1
vup 0 1 0
vpn 0 0 1
viewWindow -200 200 -200 200
display -1 5 20

I receive no feedback from opensees.exe. Or is there a certain function I can use in OpenSees.exe to run a mode shape plot?

I hope someone can push me in the right direction to plot mode shapes.
