Structural Tests

FRAME1:

This test and the one which follows demonstrate two methods to solve a simple frame. Here, the frame is reduced via three reductions to a residual model which is solved and the results expanded.

FRAME2:

Here, the frame is solved as a single system.

FRAME3:

This is another simple frame test, showing the use of alias nodes.

GAP:

The three gap tests check the operation of the gap and friction element. In this test, the first load case does not break the friction while the second one does.

GAP2:

This test is a bit more complicated than the first one, but essentially the same.

GAP3:

This test shows how one can perform two different stress analyses in the same run.

INACTIVE:

This set of data illustrates how to perform several stress analyses with different elements inactive.

INPLACE:

This set of data illustrates how to perform an inplace analysis of a fixed jacket. The structure is restrained through nonlinear soil/pile interaction. Twelve load cases are generated using four wave headings to the structure and two different wave heights. An operating environment and an extreme environment are explored using heavy and light deck loads.

JLIFT:

This is a relatively small jacket being lifted. Instead of solving the problem in MOSES style, it is solved as if using a traditional structural analysis program. This sample shows how to use MOSES as if it were a simple structural program.

PUNAPI:

This is a simple test of punching shear. It tests the -code option on the JOINT command.

PUNTEST:

This is another test of punching shear.

RESTEST:

This is a simple test of the input and reporting of restraints.

SEMIT:

This is a test of performing two structural solutions in the same run.

SOLVE2:

This is a test of performing two structural solutions in the same run.

SUBSTR:

This is an example of how to reduce, solve, and expand a structure.

YLGAP:

This test illustrates the behavior of the gap element using a continuous beam, pinned on the ends, with the gap element support in the middle.
