Pushover Analisys

Hello,

This is my 3rd thread and seems that no one from Bently staff seems to bother to give me a reply. I am still writing to try my luck once more.

I am applying a pushover analysis on a steel structure. But I am stuck at the application of hinge properties. Apparently FEMA has a default linear Moment-rotation curve, hence I want to add a new curve. But I do not know how to define the Yield Moment and Yield Rotation. Also when it comes to apply the hinge properties for braces how do I do it because braces need another type of hinge but StaadPro appears to have only Moment-Rotation type of hinge.

Can anyone help (is Benltly Forum still operating?)

  • In section 4.5.2 of the Pushover Analysis documentation, you can find the description and an example for the input that needs to be specified for a user-defined moment hinge.

    If you have a data set you wish to specify and if you can upload it to this thread, we can provide you with a sample model containing that data.

    For braces, we assume you are looking for an axial hinge. Such a hinge is not available in STAAD at present.
