  1. 陈老师 ,您好。我正在学习opensees,我想使用您开发的这个软件。您能发一份给我吗?十分感谢

  2. 本人也在做相关工作,求解,如何调用opensees在后台计算,并同步监听是否计算完成

  3. Hi Dear Cheng
    Many thanks for your excellent work
    I want to translate the app to persian for persian audiences
    Is there any way to help me?
    I saw a tutorial which translate other applications with exeScope app but i could not because of an error
    Best Regards

  4. Dear Chen,
    Thank you for this wonderful software.
    By the is there any way to change the units? I do it with different lib.tcl file with MKS units but I see not option to update it in the software.

  5. 如果能同时提供Mac和Linux版本就好了

    • 工作太忙了,新版本也一直都没更新!

      • 对你来说,应该很简单。如果程序对系统没有太强的依赖性,换成gcc编译下,应该就可以了。

        • 其实一开始我就考虑过跨平台的问题,所以界面用了wxwidgets,图形库用VTK,都是开源跨平台的,代码也能在mingw32下编译。不过作为设计院绘图狗,真的没有太多时间用来写代码。前阵子因为签证问题,我失去了继续读研究生的机会,这段时间我真的没有心情搞这个。

  6. 请问出现“程序无法正常启动(0XC000007b)”是什么问题

  7. 想问一下哪个版本支持win10-64位?

  8. Hi Dear Chen
    would you explain me what's the function of Port and Host in Analysis Option?
    Best regards

    • This function is used to view the displacement in real time
      See the change in displacement before the end of the analysis is localhost

    How to solve this? After appearing this in output window it says Opensees.exe stopped working.

    I am using OSLite for modelling RC frames in OpenSees. I am getting error during running while using 'remove' command (without using remove command, OSLite runs without any error). I ran the script directly in OpenSees without any error. Please Help.
