Is it also possible to use nonlinear material behavior in a time history analysis?

Answer

To be able to consider nonlinearities in dynamics, the RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History add-on module is required in RFEM/RSTAB. This module is different in RFEM and RSTAB, depending on the type of nonlinearities to be applied.

RSTAB – Nonlinear Time History Analysis

  • Nonlinear member types, such as tension and compression members as well as cables
  • Member nonlinearities, such as failure, tearing, and yielding under tension or compression
  • Support nonlinearities, such as failure, friction, diagram, and partial activity
  • Hinge nonlinearities, such as friction, partial activity, diagram, and fixed if positive or negative internal forces

RFEM – Nonlinear Time History Analysis

In addition to the nonlinearities mentioned above, it is also possible to use nonlinear material behavior.
