Research Tools

This page includes a few of the tools that we have found helpful in our research. We hope that you will find them helpful as well, and that they will make your research more productive (no sense in you having to duplicate work that we already did). The page includes the following tools:

  • Excel tools for computing calibrated model parameters for reinforced concrete elements.
  • Dynamic solution algorithm for use with OpenSees analyses.
  • Collapse animation videos showing selected results of nonlinear dynamic collapse simulations.
  • A packaged single-degree-of-freedom model in OpenSees (including Matlab pre- and post-processors).
