Re: Different results in seismostruct and seismobuild

From your description, I am not sure if you changed something in the model from SeismoBuild and SeismoStruct.
In general, both programs should give the same results with the same parameters.

Re: about verification reports examples (RC joint)

Shahdhruviajay, Seismosoft cannot provide personalised support to all our free academic users (they are thousands), this is simply impossible. All these problems of your should probably discussed be with your supervisor. If you have specific questions on the model, we will be happy to assist you. In...

Re: Pushover analysis of underground floors

Hi Pedro, As Fanis must have explained, applying lateral incremental forces in the basement is a conservative, because there is no clear concensus between the Standards on how to deal with this issue. Regarding the failure of the basement walls, it is not unlikely to happen, especially in older cons...

Re: Suggestion: Displaying Link Elements Properties

Thank you for your suggestion. Indeed this is one of the features that we plan to develop in future versions of the program.

Re: Suggestion: A program that displays multiple results

Thank you for your suggestions, which we will consider in the development of new versions in the future. All the same, note that SeismoBatch, apart from running multiple spf files, is capable of extracting most of the results drived (displacements, element forces etc) from all the analyses and writi...

Re: RC JOINTS- Shear panel modelling

There is a problem with the connection of the link and frame elements, they are not connected in series.
However, explaining how to model structures in FE is out of the scope of this forum. This is probably an issue that can be better discussed with your supoervisor.

Re: element class specification (integration section and section fibers)

2-3mm axial deformation in a 3m column is a 0.1% deformation which (for an axial deformation) is very significant. Furthermore, it is not reasonable that at the top floor in column columns the vertical displacement is almost 3cm and in others just 1cm. Without delving into details (we cannot provide...

Re: how to model a section of a RC shear wall with CFST boundaries?

You could model each part of the section with different section types and connect the elements at their ends with rigid links

Re: RC JOINTS- Shear panel modelling

You need to check the restraints in the nodes of the link elements. Furthermore, you need to connect the beam elements to the internal x1 & x2 nodes of the links rather than the restrained external nodes.

Re: element class specification (integration section and section fibers)

If you check in the deformed shape viewer to see the displacements (from the menun on the left) you will notice that in some of the columns the vertical displacements at the top are excessive.
