November is National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo. The goal is to write a blog post a day for the full month of November, and in doing so, engage readers and get the creative juices flowing. November is also NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but we’re talking about blog posts, not journal articles.

Each day in November, I will post a blog entry about OpenSees. I have ideas for about 2/3 of the month lined up. The other 1/3 should come to me as the month proceeds; however, if I start posting kitten pictures after November 20, you’ll know the other 1/3 didn’t materialize.

Most of the posts I’ve planned are brief topics on OpenSees, particularly how to do useful things with Python. Other posts will be more involved. I expect some posts to be stinkers, while others will be nuggets of pure gold for someone out there.

I definitely attempt to stay positive all the time. I have been involved in the development, maintenance, and growth of OpenSees since its early days. Recently, I've taken an interest in learning Python and improving my academic writing.

Dear P.D,
If it is possible, please
1-Put and explain input for pervious “Modeling Challenges”
2-Some example for interesting topic —–>>> Tsunami and Fluid-Structure Interaction analysis an in OpenSees
3-Comparing Algorithm Command in OpenSees
Thanks,

Dear sir,
If possible please discuss the following things:
1. OpenSees from a developer point of view – in and outs of OpenSees source code – so that more development can take place.
2. How to compile OpenSeesPy from OpenSees source code.

Dear Professor ,
If possible please clarify these major modeling techniques
1. Concentrated plastic hinge modeling
How to calibrate a plastic hinge property for a steel and concrete structure using codes or analytical methods

For 3d structure how to use concentrated plastic hinge model assuming or neglecting moment interaction.
