Hey there,

I have two questions which are related regarding above subject:

1) Does robot give acceleration of building due wind loa?

2) if yes does it requie nonlinear analysis?

 

Thank you all in advanc.

The non linear analysis is not required but you need to define how load (wind) changes in time either using time history analysis or harmonic analysis (limited to one type of load change function). For the prior you can get acceleration in nodes directly whereas for the later it is necessary to calculate this value based on obtained displacements.

Thanks for your quick responsed but to make the picture more clear,

 

- If i want to define function to get the accel. "harmoinc function", does it required that the wind to be genarated from ROBOT or it can be done while i express the wind as a static uniform load on cladding ?

The function is 'applied' to a load case (all loads defined within a load case regardless of their 'origin').
