Defining plastic hinge

Post by afhann » Wed May 05, 2021 8:37 am


I want to use Beam With Hinges Element but I could not find enough documentation on OpenSeesPy. Should I use this command to define a plastic hinge for the beam?

Can you help me?

You can define a section then use that section along with a hinge length in the beamWithHinges elements.
