Re: Regarding adaptive pushover analysis

In displacement-based pushover the loads are indeed displacement and their scaling should be done according to a displacement response spectrum.
Not sure what you mean with your second question though. Can you please explain ti a bit further?

Re: Configure IDA for avoiding integer overflow

You could select which results to output in the Output tab of the pre-processor. By deselecting for instance the elements you can reduce significantly the results file. Furthermore, you could delete the code-based checks and the perofrmance criteria (if you have defined any).

Re: an element with a plastic hinge at the bottom

Not sure that we understand what you mean Ralazem. The program automatically carries out shear checks at every step of the analysis, taking into consideration the state of the member and all the factors that affect the shear strength at that step, i.e. axial load, depth of compression zone, the Lv=M...

Re: manual verification eigenvalue results

From SeismoStruct you can obtain useful information from the Eigenvalue Results and the Nodal Mass (under Eigenvalue Results ) tabs in the Post-Processor.

Re: Regarding adaptive pushover analysis

Simply change the sign of the displacement value in the Loading Phases module without changing the loads. Negative loading factors will be automatically applied

Re: Regarding on performance criteria

Mangesh30, Publishing a new release requires too much effort for several days by too many people. As we explained before the bug will be corrected in the upcoming v2020 release, but we do not consider it to be so important to justify all this additional work for the upgrade. Our policy is to provide...

Re: Epicentral distances of database records

What exactly do you mean Kamrack? Which is the operation that asks you for the BDE?

Re: Regarding on performance criteria

The bug has been corrected in the upcoming v2020 release.
Unfortunately, in the version that is currently available, one has to do as Zoi suggested in the post above.

Re: Regarding adaptive pushover analysis

Because the building sustains damage during the pushover analysis, the fundamental period (and all its dynamic characteristics) change during the analysis. The period values that you get are the ones before the application of the load at each step. If you are interested in the uncracked, undamaged s...

Re: Parameters for manual pushover procedure

After running pushover you can get in the post-processor the following results: 1) the base shear at any step can be extracted from the Global Response Parameters>Hysteretic Curves 2) the weight of the structure can be extracted from the Global Response Parameters>Forces and Moments at Supports 3) t...
