Inelastic analysis in sap2000

Inelastic analysis in sap2000

How can I consider material nonlinearity analysis
with sap2000 ?
Can I introduce (My) in static analysis
at joints ?
Thank's a lot.


RE: Inelastic analysis in sap2000

SAP is available in a nonlinear version.  That's probably your best option.  Unless you have a very limited need for nonlinear analysis, it is a pain to emulate nonlinearity the old-fashioned way by using applied loads and moments at plastic regions.

RE: Inelastic analysis in sap2000

Hi Shahidi,
I'm a SAP2000 user and unfortunately the nonlinear capabilities of the program are restricted to time history analisys. In static analisys, the nlink elements have a linear behavior.
