I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Infrastructure Group at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the University of Utah.
My research focuses on seismic performance assessment of post-tensioned concrete bridge bents using non-linear three-dimensional modeling and dynamic analyses of full scale bridges in OpenSees. Developing 3-D rocking post-tensioned bridge column model and validating it against various laboratory tests is an important part of my research.
On this website, I will share my knowledge on OpenSees modeling through various examples, explaining the thought process behind complex OpenSees models. This will be helpful for new learners.
