Need Example - How to use Arc Length Integrator?

Post by polimeruvijay » Mon Mar 18, 2019 12:55 am

Dear Community Members

Could anybody please give me an example to analyze a RC cantilever subjected to reversed cyclic displacement loading, using arc length integrator.

I know this problem is easily solvable using displacement control integrator, I just want to know. How can we solve this problem using Arc Length integrator.

Unlike displacement control integrator (integrator DisplacementControl $node $dof $incr), arclength integrator (integrator ArcLength $s $alpha) does not have any option to specify node and corresponding DOF at which the displacement is applied. Then how can we specify the node and corresponding dof at which the displacement is applied?.

Thanks and regards
