Base Plate Column analysis in SAP2000

Base Plate Column analysis in SAP2000


I try to find the graphic Moment-rotation from SAP2000, I'm modeling a Base Plate Column with shell element, this model has Axial force and moment, I'm using Non linear analysis, please I need help with this.


RE: Base Plate Column analysis in SAP2000

I do not know SAP but maybe SAP does not show you this directly !?!?
You have to apply a certain moment and then read the rotation....
repeat this for different values for moment and at the end you get the moment-rotation graph

best regards
