The GiD+OpenSees Interface

The GiD+OpenSees Interface introduces a long-awaited graphical interface for the popular open source finite element software OpenSees
by seamlessly connecting its text-only solver to the user-friendly general graphical pre/post processor GiD.
It is available as an add-on (problemtype) for GiD and delivered as open source, under the GNU General Public License.


Latest version : 2.5.5

A new User Manual is now included ! And a .tcl import feature too !


The interface currently provides a comprehensive set of materials and 1D / 2D / 3D elements for linear / nonlinear static and dynamic analysis.
It can also manage multiple model domains (groups of elements with different number of DOFs), for easy modeling of soil-structure interaction (SSI) problems.


The interface is being developed in the Lab of R/C and Masonry Structures, School of Civil Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.
