a graphical user interface for OpenSees

 

by Georgios Baltzopoulos, Roberto Baraschino, Iunio Iervolino and Dimitrios Vamvatsikos

 

Download DYANAS

 

Requirements

·       MATHWORKS MATLAB® version 2015a or newer installed

Toolboxes required:

-       Curve Fitting Toolbox (3.5.1)

-       Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox (10.0)

·       OpenSees version 2.5.0 or newer: executable present in the directory [...]\DYANAS\osees\

·       TCL/TK installed

 

Installing and running DYANAS

                                                                                                                  

1.     Copy (unzip) the DYANAS folder and subfolders to a non-system location on your drive (make sure there are no spaces in the path name).

2.   Go to the directory [...]\DYANAS\osees\ and replace the file "opensees_exe.txt" with the

     OpenSees executable file "opensees.exe", downloadable from  http://opensees.berkeley.edu/

3.  Install tcl/tk according to the instructions found in the OpenSees download page .

4.  Start MATLAB and make the [...]\DYANAS\ directory the working folder.

5.  Open "main_GUI.m" in MATLAB and run it.

6. The main DYANAS graphical user interface will appear. MATLAB must remain in the initial

              working directory of DYANAS for the GUI to be responsive to the user.

 

 

Standalone version of DYANAS

This version contains all MATLAB® code compiled into an executable file, and thus does not require a MATHWORKS MATLAB® installation to run (it does require installation of the appropriate MATLAB runtime compiler though). Use this alternative if the DYANAS graphical interface exhibits some incompatibility with your version of MATLAB.

Requirements

·       MATLAB® RUNTIME version 8.5 (R2015a) installed

·       OpenSees version 2.5.0 or newer: executable present in the directory [...]\DYANAS\osees\

·       TCL/TK installed

 

Installing and running DYANAS standalone

                                                                                                                  

1.     Run the installer (DYANAS_setup.exe) and follow the installation instructions. For the installation path, make sure to select a non-system location on your drive that contains no spaces in the folder/subfolder names).

2.   Go to the directory [...]\DYANAS\osees\ and replace the file "opensees_exe.txt" with the

     OpenSees executable file "opensees.exe", downloadable from  http://opensees.berkeley.edu/

3.  Install tcl/tk according to the instructions found in the OpenSees download page .

4.  Download and install MATLAB runtime 8.5 (R2015a) available at the MATHWORKS website.

5.  Run "DYANAS.exe". In WINDOWS environment right click the DYANAS icon and select run as administrator.

 

 

 

DYANAS is a MATHWORKS MATLAB®-based graphical user interface that uses the OpenSees finite element platform to perform nonlinear dynamic analysis of single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) oscillators. The scope of this open-source software is to serve as a tool for earthquake engineering research.

The main advantages offered by the interface are ease in the definition of the required analysis parameters and corresponding seismic input, efficient execution of the analyses themselves and availability of a suite of convenient, in-built post-processing tools for the management and organization of the structural responses.

The types of dynamic analysis frameworks supported are incremental, multiple-stripe and cloud.

 

UPDATE 23/11/2018

In this update two extra features were implemented in DYANAS:

·       The possibility of exporting the displacement response-history into a text file and matlab figure directly from the GUI after each “single-run dynamic” analysis was added.

·       Inserting more than one period value in the IM definition box (separated by spaces or commas, e.g., 0.5 1.0 2.0) allows the selection of average spectral acceleration Savg as IM, defined as the geometric average of spectral acceleration at the selected periods: .

 

UPDATE 24/12/2018

BUGFIX: Fixed an issue with DYANAS standalone that sometimes led B2B IDA to get stuck in postprocessing.

 

UPDATE 12/08/2019

Fixed some issues with DYANAS standalone reading output files in windows 10. Output text files are now compatible with and can be read directly by R2R-EU, that can fit fragility functions, integrate with hazard and quantify estimation uncertainty of failure rates.
