35.2 K


The Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (OpenSees) is a software framework for simulating the seismic response of structural and geotechnical systems. The OpenSees Development team hosts a web-based learning series called "Discovering OpenSees: Surfing the waves of OpenSees" with tips and tricks for using the framework. This session titled "Getting Started with OpenSees" was held in September 2011. This web-learning session is primarily designed for new or beginning users to help them understand the structure of OpenSees framework, introduce them to Tcl programming language, guide them through on-line OpenSees learning resources, and demonstrate the process of creating a simple model and running it using OpenSees.
