Target displacement according to the EC8-3

Post by Ricardo Ferreira »

Hello.
For calculation of the target displacement calculation according to the EC8-3, 3 damage levels are available for the determination of the target displacement, namely the damage limitation, significant damage and near collapse. However, target displacements presented in the post-processor refer to operation level, significant damage and near collapse. My question is: the operational level displacement presented in the post processor refers to the damage limitation?

Unfortunately it is a bug that pop up from time to time in SeismoStruct v2021.
But this is a problem of the labels only. What is refererred to as OL is in fact the DL, the second labelr refers to the SD limit state, and the third label is the NC limit state.
Note also that if you re-run the analysis and the correct labels will be shown.

Apologies for this.
