OpenSees & DesignSafe
A Walkthrough of all Available Options from Analysis to Post-Processing


October 31, 2018 | 1pm-2pm CT

The Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (OpenSees) is a software framework for simulating the static and seismic response of structural and geotechnical systems. It has advanced capabilities for modeling and analyzing the nonlinear response of systems using a wide range of material models, elements, and solution algorithms. One sequential (OpenSees EXPRESS) and two parallel interpreters (OpenSeesSP and OpenSeesMP) are available on DesignSafe. Several options are currently available to easily use those applications through the cyberinfrastructure. This webinar will provide an overview of each interpreter, along with example scripts and step-by-step procedures on how to properly utilize each available computational option. Post-processing strategies will also be analyzed and discussed.
