I am not sure about the unit consistency in the acceleration records. Could you please check to see that the accln is in mm/s^2 range; also, is (section. f...

Re: Physical separation of properties

Hi, Thanks and I tried applying everything you said to my model. I have created a dummy element with E=0 and the members seem to be physically separated. But when meshing the homogenized 3d using face meshing with structured quad topology, there were three node meshing at some points too. It'd be of...

Physical separation of properties

Hi, I have built a 4 noded quad structure for the gable walls to help create a uniform mesh for 4-noded shell. The mesh is getting interfered by the nodes of the micro-model (shown in screenshot below). How do I create an interaction between the wall, wood frame and the cgi roof and still keep them ...

solver kit error

Hi, I recently bought a one year version of the STKO. I downloaded it in C drive. When I take a sample file "column uniform excitation" I found somewhere in the forum to run the analysis, I come across an error: "You must select a solver kit to run the analysis". The Opensees, Openseessp, and Opense...
