Fast MatLAB function for nonlinear-inelastic time-history analysis of a single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) oscillator.
The code runs for a single or a series of input excitations for parametric study. MatLAB is used for pre-processing; nonlinear SDOF system is constructed and solved using OpenSEES (http://opensees.berkeley.edu/index.php) in the background. The user can define any nonlinear material model available in OpenSEES. Material properties are defined in InSPecReg/material.tcl.
Note: Input ground motions are currently set to PEER format in PEER ground motion database at http://ngawest2.berkeley.edu/
Two example ground motions are provided, results are in ASCII format in ".out" files as inch/s² for acc.out, inch for disp.out
