Can you help how to activate nonlinear properties in General Link

Question:


Please can you let me know how to activate non-linear properties in General Link? This request has been reported through the website.

Thank you,



Answer:Hi,
If you use 'Element' type on 'Application Type', you can reflects the nonlinear behavior of the element by renewing the element stiffness matrix in the process of analysis.
And, if you use 'Spring' type on 'Property Type', you can apply inelastic hinge properties by clicking 'Inelastic Hinge Properties' to reflects the nonlinear behavior of the element.
Therefore, to activate nonlinear properties which you mentioned, you should use 'Force' for 'Application Type'.
Please refer to the online manual for the futher information.
