Removing dead load

Hello, I have a question concerning the loads that some steel braces (like an X) that I modelled have. I put some braces in an existing building so they will not have any vertical forces except from the self-weight but I am afraid I didn't model it right. I noticed that I have huge loads in my braci...

Different number of rebars along the columns

Hello,

I have a suggestion, the option of modelling a different number of longitudinal steel bars in the columns. Some buildings have columns with different number of bars in the joint columns-beams and it would be easy to have the capacity of model it in the the building modeller of seismostruct.

Re: Buckling-Restrained Braces ( BRB ) Modelling

I sent the model.

Everything is in the same direction, I don't know if it's a bug or something with my model.

Re: Buckling-Restrained Braces ( BRB ) Modelling

Hello, I am having the same problem reported in this thread. I modelled a concrete structure with a truss (the truss is modelled like a truss element class) and when I run the pushover analysis it says "Axis Maximum Value must be >= Minimum" and no result is shown. If I uncheck the target displaceme...

Re: Expressions for Shear Capacity

No, I didn't find anything about 6.2a (EC2) in EC8-3. But I've read from some sources (don't know their true reliability) that the equation 6.2a (EC2) is the one we should use if an element fails to shear capacity before chord rotation... Generally the shear capacity failing happens after chord rota...

Expressions for Shear Capacity

Hello Concerning the Shear resistance of an element what are the expression used by seismostruct for an eurocode analysis? EC8-3 have A.12, A.15 and A.16 but if an element, for a SD limit state, doesn't have a deformation failure (chord rotation) and just straight shear failure it could fail for the...

Re: Centre of Stiffness and Centre of Mass

Dear Seismosoft,

We can just know the centre of Mass in the last floor (or the one below the last one) in the Analysis Output tab, correct?

Centre of Stiffness and Centre of Mass

Hello, I have a suggestion for seismostruct, probably I am not the first one suggesting this. It would be great to have the option of knowing automatically the centre of mass and stiffness. It would take less time reinforcing non regular buildings and since every EC8 combination must be run separate...

Re: Can't open a dwg file in seismostruct Building Modeller

I finally solved it.

The .dwg file was in the company server (which was not a problem before), so I just copied and pasted the .dwg in the computer desktop and seismostrc could load the .dwg

Re: Can't open a dwg file in seismostruct Building Modeller

Hello,

I posted in the forum so maybe someone that had the same mistake could provide information on how to solve it.

I tried in another PC (official version release 2 instead of release 3) and the error persisted. I will disable my antivirus again maybe it will work.

Thanks
