# Non-linear releases

Hi,

By using non-linear releases:

Can we obtain a capacity curve when making a push over analysis?

Is the user able to obtain the plastic ratio and/or generally view the plastic state for each increment?

Which are the differences comparing with the non linear hinges?

Thank you.

No

No.

Different way of definiton , different locations.

As concerns the 3rd question: if the location and the function are the same, is the behaviour-responce also the same?

Furthermore, in which way are we able to view-display the non-linearity of the behaviour in case of using non linear releases?

Hope so.

Only by looking at forces, moments, stresses results.
