Cyclic displacement-based loading


is it possible to define a cyclic loading protocol that is displacement-based?

I want to calibrate a FEM model to the results of experiments on timber walls. The loading protocol was calculated according to the standard ISO21581.

Hello Ms Gruewa

Have you tried the ASE command PUSH?
The general procedure is described in the following TEDDY example.

TEDDY > File > Examples > ase > english > nonlinear_quad > push_over_quad_deformation_controlled.dat

Detailed explanations can be found in the ASE manual.

SSD / TEDDY > Help > User Manuals > All Manuals… > ase > chapter 3.8 PUSH - Push over analysis

Dear Mr. Höller,

I tried the procedure in the aforementioned example, but the program does not increase the displacement in the ASE task with ULTI. The displacement is added in SofiPLUS as a WXX displacement.
