- Produce the results of inelastic hinge formation of the spring type in a spreadsheet format table.
- Table Tool in midas Civil offers a variety of powerful built-in functions. Refer to Usage of Table Tool for detail directions:
From main menu, select [Results] tab > [Results Tables] group > [Inelastic Hinge] > [Spring Summary]
Upon executing the Spring Summary function, Records Activation Dialog prompts. Click OK after selecting the output entities such as nodes or elements, loading conditions, eigenvalue modes, etc. Click Cancel to produce a table for the selected entities. It may take a long time occasionally. and it may take a long time.
Refer to Results Table of "Usage of Table Tool" for the usage of Records Activation Dialog.
Refer to the usage of Table Tool and check the following data.
Spring Summary Tables
Prop. : General Link Property
Node1, 2 : Node numbers connecting a General Link
Inelastic Hinge Prop. : Inelastic Hinge Property name defined
Load : Time History Load
Time/Step : Time/Step
Deform : Deformation occurred at the current step
Force : Member force occurred at the current step
D/D1 : Ductility (Deformation / 1st Yielding Deformation)
D/D2 : Ductility (Deformation / 2nd Yielding Deformation)
Status : Hinge Status (Elastic, 1st Yield, 2nd Yield, 3rd Yield)
P1 : 1st Yielding Strength
P2 : 2nd Yielding Strength - produced only for Trilinear and Tetralinear hysteresis models
P3 : 3rd Yielding Strength - produced only for Tetralinear hysteresis model
D1 : 1st Yielding Deformation
D2 : 2nd Yielding Deformation - produced only for Trilinear and Tetralinear hysteresis models
D3 : 3rd Yielding Deformation - produced only for Tetralinear hysteresis model
In the case of base isolator devices, ductility (D/D1, D/D2), yield strength and yield deformation are not produced due to the characteristics of the elements.
