I gave a presentation last week for the 6th International Short Course on Seismic Analysis of Structures, hosted remotely and on-site at the University of Palermo, Italy, organized by Prof. Giovanni Minafo and Prof. Cristoforo Demartino.
As you can see in the video, my presentation
re-packaged leveraged several blog posts.
Not every slide was about a post and some slides referenced multiple posts. A few yet-to-be-written posts made it in as well. Below are time stamps from the recording with links to the corresponding posts.
- 00:50 – OpenSees Is Simple
- 01:55 – Off the Hooke / Start with the Correct Static Resisting Force
- 04:44 – Early Landscape of OpenSees
- 06:20 – The Prevalence of OpenSees in JSE
- 08:03 – OpenSees Source Control: From Zip to Git
- 13:02 – No CAPS When You Spell the Framework’s Name
- 14:19 – Just Another Python Module
- 15:28 – OpenSeesPy Is Not Terrible for the Environment
- 17:00 – How to Bend Beams
- 18:41 – A Marathon, Not a Sprint / Minimal Working Example
- 19:49 – A New Challenge
- 21:23 – SSI Modeling Challenge
- 22:46 – A Very Stable Challenge
- 24:45 – Verifying Ain’t Easy
- 32:02 – Gimme All Your Damping, All Your Mass and Stiffness Too / Right Under Your Nose
- 33:59 – PFEM in OpenSees [FUTURE POST]
- 35:37 – OpenSees Fire v2.0
- 39:23 – Means and Ends [FUTURE POST]
- 40:35 – It’s a Fine Line
- 41:37 – You Know You’ll Have to Write About It / One More OpenSees Analysis
- 44:56 – You Get What You Give [FUTURE POST]
This presentation was non-technical, but I’ve strung together other posts to make technical content, e.g., a course syllabus on nonlinear structural analysis if you are interested.
The seeds for the Palermo presentation came from a presentation I gave in 2014 in Medan, Indonesia. No video, but the PDF has some nice nuggets of OpenSees information.
