Adding new p-y material in opensees

Post by harsh » Tue Feb 16, 2021 7:50 am

Hi,

I am trying to add new uniaxial p-y material in opensees and was wondering whether the code should be developed based on the stress and strain or it should developed in terms of soil resistance (p) and displacement (y).


Kind Regards,
Harsh Mistry

Develop it as p-y. Uniaxial materials are scalar functions and have no inherent meaning. The calling objects treat the functions appropriately.

Thank you for the reply.
Once the material is developed, should I just create a pull request or any other documentation is also required?
