Re: Help with Inelastic Column Buckling with Material Nonlinearity

Hi Joe,

Thanks for sticking through this and helping me out. 


I too found out earlier today that perturbing the model via nodes offset/move might be a better way of introducing imperfection rather than an end moment. 


I recently discovered that convenient API to move nodes by deformation. 


I can feel a resurgence of energy and try to move on to more advanced NL buckling i.e. plates and ultimately stiffened panels. 


Appreciate your help.
