Non-linear releases

  Hi,

 

  I would like to ask about the “non-linear releases” in Robot.

 

  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.

  Thanks for ther reply.

 

  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.

  Answer: "Hope so."

 

  It will be helpfull If anyone that has made any kind of invsetigation and has come to any conclusions about this issue to let us know.

  After testing a simple cantilever, the results are identical.
