I found a mistake

Post by shenlinbai » Thu Mar 18, 2021 11:38 pm

When I compiled the model using openseespy, I found if I use command "element('ElastomericBearingBoucWen......."
The system will report an error:
WARNING element type ElastomericBearingBoucWen is unknown
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "D:/2020工作/PythonOpenseesModel/main.py", line 217, in <module>
element('ElastomericBearingBoucWen', 10 * jdsl + 6, 10 * jdsl + 10, 10 * jdsl + 12, 250000.0, 1666.67, 0.02, 0.0, 3.0,
opensees.OpenSeesError: See stderr output
However, if I use command "element('elastomericBearingBoucWen'...............".There will be no errors.
Hope to be able to modify the official document of openseespy tutorial as soon as possible.

The documentation is correct: https://openseespydoc.readthedocs.io/en ... ucWen.html

Was there an error in an example posted online?
