MTR/SASSI Program new additions include:
- New Pipe Element for proper modeling and inclusion of piping systems in SSI models.
- New Pile Element for accurate and efficient analysis of structures on large pile group foundations.
- New ANSYS data exchange utility to translate ANSYS model “as is” to MTR/SASSI model.
- New Response Simulation Method for SSI analysis incorporating the effects of ground motion incoherency.
- New Spectra Matching Module for time domain modification of an acceleration time history to make it compatible with broad-band target spectrum.
- New Baseline Correction Module for time domain modification of an acceleration time history to remove the displacement drift caused by double integration.
