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?)
Pushover analysis in STAAD.Pro is limited to steel structures only. So you cannot have a material by a different name. You should however be able to modify the value of E for STEEL and the analysis should work. I have attached an example file with E value of approx. 210 GPa used for steel.
