What is the quickest way of assigning soil springs on pile nodes?
Hi Manuel Naval,
The quickest way of assigning soil springs on pile nodes is not thru the GUI, but in an input text file. The programmable ASCII will allow you to create routines for repetible elements in the .tcl format.
Hi Marcos. Thanks for the reply. Do you have any example that can guide me? In addition to that, is going to be in the GP tcl or RM tcl? there should be a consistency between the two interfaces right? Your assistance is much appreciated.
Hi Marcos. I just want to followup on my query below.
Hi Manuel, Yes, at File\Examples\Demo Examples & FAQ\Using user defined flexibility & Stiffness matrix you will find the demonstration of this feature with files and on document about it.
The .tcl files shows three different variants for the same mode with pile foundations:
This additions will be at the Analyzer (RM) .tcl
See my reply above. About the .tcl scripting interface as input, there are additional references inside RM Bridge installation:
At File\Examples\Demo Examples & FAQ\ TCL Demo Examples, where the ASCII text programmable part is shown.
At Help\Technical Notes\ TCL Scrip Guide & TCL Scrip Commands, where the concepts, strings, tools, commands and syntax are explained.
Appreciate very much your reply. I have another followup questions:
1. Do i need to do the TCL edits in the GP model or RM analyzer?
2. In doing the TCL, shall i only include the springs and element involve? i mean in the TCL export in GP, there is no option of exporting partial TCL (eg, springs only).
