Elastic Shear Beams in OpenSees

Shear deformations in slender beams are generally not significant compared to flexural deformations. But shear deformation are important in deep beams and short walls, and flexure-shear interaction may be important in the material nonlinear range of response, regardless of aspect ratio. Enough of the perfunctory, non-committal language--you can find that in the latest issue of … Continue reading Elastic Shear Beams in OpenSees
