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

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 (sets of elements with different number of DOFs), for easy modeling of soil-structure interaction (SSI) problems.

It has been developed in the Lab of R/C and Masonry Structures, School of Civil Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, by T. Kartalis-Kaounis, V.K. Protopapadakis and T. Papadopoulos, Dipl. Civil Engineers, under the coordination of V.K. Papanikolaou, Assistant Professor.
