Running the Pushover Analysis

 

The Pushover Analysis is a non-linear static analysis used to simulate the post-elastic behavior of the structure. The load is applied in increments, whilst the plastic behavior of the structure is modeled locally, via the plastic hinges applied at the ends of linear elements.

Note

By default, both the RC calculation and Steel calculation will be enabled.

Depending on the material and the type of the Plastic Hinges, there are certain results that need to be available, in order to be calculated. Thus, in some cases it is mandatory to perform the RC calculation or the Steel calculation.
