Topic: Pullout

Dear All,

I am modelling pull out test. Concrete block is retrained against any movement.

To get global L-D diagram, where should I place my displacement monitor. Since concrete block is not giving any displacement because of constraints provided.

Best Regards

Dear ali, it is not clear from your message if you have already read ATENA Troubleshooting, 2.2.12How can I model a pull-out experiment? The usual position for a displacement monitor is on the elastic "wrap" around the bar end being pulled.


Re: Pullout


Yes I followed Atena trouble shooting manual.

Please have a look at my L-D and monitors in below link, Am I doing the things correctly. … LsxuuMYsGM

Dear ali,
if you seek advice regarding your particular model, please follow Troubleshooting, 2.1.1 to send us the model etc.

Moreover, Monitor for Point Nearest Node IP might be an interesting option for you.

In any case, it is important to place the monitors in your analysis as close as possible to real gauge positioning.
