Plot results / model
« on: December 15, 2020, 05:12:17 PM »
Hi everybody  :D,

I red the documentation but I did not found what I was searching for. So I ask you this two questions:
1) how can I plot the results in .xlsx format?
2) what kind of model S3hark create in Opensees? Do it use finite or infinite elements? Do it use dashpot or something else?

Thank you,

Hi Marco,

Thanks for your question.
1) Exporting .xlsx files is not supported yet. We'll add this feature soon.
2) S3hark create an effective stress site response analysis finite element model, with dashpots at the base.

There are two options to solve the FE model:

In the 'Configure' tab, if you left the OpenSees path empty by default, S3hark will solve the model internally.

If you provided the OpenSees path there, S3hark will create a tcl file and call your OpenSees to run it.
This tcl file can be found in
macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/SimCenter/s3hark/analysis/
Windows: C:/Users/<USER>/AppData/Roaming/SimCenter/s3hark/analysis/
