AutoSDA results for 10+ stories
« on: September 18, 2021, 12:22:48 AM »
Hello,

It looks like the AutoSDA edps above the 10th story are getting collected incorrectly. The attached results have identical edp for the 11-15th and the 1-5th stories. See this (unrestricted) folder for the backend files: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZjFFgGKpcCBHp27bh84q2LogAQgC1jKI?usp=sharing

Also, would it be possible to collect the peak drifts, in addition to the displacements and accelerations?

Thanks,
Anne

Hi Anne,

Sorry about the belated reply and the issue!  Yes, the recording issue was fixed in the commit: https://github.com/NHERI-SimCenter/SimCenterBackendApplications/commit/fe0032cb9cab2b14612a23a388a1b8197000c4fb#diff-6b0fe6bde27069239c0fbc4c5256298688f8deea47233338d53aedf9782518a5 and the peak drifts are available by the commit: https://github.com/NHERI-SimCenter/SimCenterBackendApplications/commit/043edb3f5c26e7d336304bc34a37ddaee7346e3b#diff-6b0fe6bde27069239c0fbc4c5256298688f8deea47233338d53aedf9782518a5.

These two commits have not been in the current release on June 24 but will be included in the next version.  However, just for a quick patch locally, please download the AutoSDA main_program.py from here: https://github.com/NHERI-SimCenter/SimCenterBackendApplications/blob/master/modules/createSAM/AutoSDA/main_program.py and use it to replace the one under your local EE-UQ (in "EE-UQ_Windows_Download/applications/createSAM/AutoSDA").  Plesae feel free to get us back if you have any trouble!

Regards,
Kuanshi

This worked perfectly, thank you! I'm not super familiar with opensees recorders. I see the lines in the commit where you added the roof node for roof drifts. But how did these few changes in the main_program.py file actually tell opensees to record the drifts?

Thanks for following up!  Yes, the main_program does not directly invoke OpenSees to record but writes SAM files with record-requesting messages that are then parsed by standardEarthquakeEDP and OpenSeesPreprocessor to add recording commands in a model script.  And the model script is called by OpenSees later to run the simulation and saving the requested EDP recordings.

Kuanshi

Heads up - the new main_program.py was not included in the most recent EE-UQ release. I've replaced it again in my local copy but wanted to highlight this, in case it was unintentional.
