Abaqus earthquake
#1
Hello, I have started working with abaqus because I want to perform some detailed nonlinear dynamic analysis. I have the time history of an earthquake (acceleration-time). I have created an amplitude with these values, but I dont know how to create the acceleration load. Please help.

Usualy the earthquake load it's used with the boundary condition,so that amplitude that you created you will use for a acceleration boundary conditions for the direction that u need.Apretty good example for this you can find in the abaqus documentation example problems concrete dam.

Hi

You can prepare your acceleration in input text file and copy and past it in *.inp or use CAE ....
By the way, I myself believe that using ABAQUS for nonlinear dynamic analysis of a framed-structure is similar to kill a fly by a hammer......take care about that and take your time..
