uniaxialMaterial

Post by ehsanala » Mon Nov 11, 2013 11:20 pm

hi
I have become familiar with the behavior of uniaxialMaterial SMA to built a simple model . Why stress-strain curve is not drawn?
Can I use the uniaxialMaterial SelfCentering instead of uniaxialMaterial SMA?

Do these two materials have similar?
Do these two materials applications are the same?

Please give more explanation
regard

OpenSees is not a drawing tool. Use a recorder to capture the output you want and plot using some other software (excel, matlab etc.)
Each material is usually developed for the specific purpose so use the material that meets your requirements. You need to understand the theory for this. Read the references and get a better understanding of the models you are using.

I asked because I had doubts.
Can I use the uniaxialMaterial SelfCentering instead of uniaxialMaterial SMA?

You should try each model and see which is most appropriate for what you are attempting to simulate.

the SMA or Shape Memory Alloy material was removed a long time ago!

Hi Frank...
Please give me some suggestion on modelling shape memory alloy material in opensees.
Its very important for my project.

Thank you so much

You can run OpenSees 2.0.0 version

Thanks for your reply.
Will uniaxial material SMA work in this version?

Also, from where can i download Opensees 2.0.0 version.
I am unable to find in on the website.
Thanks!
