Furthermore, when nonlinear</p><p>material properties are associated to the model, the process highlights the</p><p>regions where the linear-elastic behavior is exceeded (for frame structures,</p><p>the birth of so called plastic hinges) and also the order in which these</p><p>nonlinear regions appear over the model. When exceeding the linear-elastic</p><p>behavior, the amount of residual strains reveals the quantity of energydissipated during the plastic deformation.</p><p>The transient dynamic analysis requires generally more computer resources</p><p>because, at least, it is equivalent to a multi-step static analysis. Three</p><p>solution methods are usually available: thefull method, thereduced method</p><p>and the mode superposition method. Each one has its own advantage,</p><p>according to the analysis aims, computing time and the required</p><p>preprocessing work.</p><p>The transient dynamic equilibrium equation is the equation of motion</p><p>)(ta</p><p>FKCM =++ &amp;&amp;&amp; (23.1)</p><p>where</p><p> M, Cand Kare the mass, damping and stiffness matrices;</p><p> &amp;&amp; is the nodal acceleration vector, &amp; the nodal velocity vector and</p><p>the displacement vector;</p><p> )(taF is the applied load vector.</p><p>The procedure used for solving the linear equation is the time integration</p><p>method (the Newmark method).
