Which element is needed for 3D modeling in Opesees

Post by pallavi » Thu Jul 16, 2009 4:57 am

Dear All,

We are doing a 3D modeling in OpenSees of a Bridge and Building structure.

Can anybody tell us which element is suitable for the modeling in 3D, means whether it should be tetrahedra, Hexahedra, 20 noded brick element or anything else??

We are using GiD as a modeling software.

Which element is suitable for carrying out the simulation of the 3D Bridge and Frame structure.

Thanking You

Regards

Pallavi
