2.3.5. EDP ApplicationsΒΆ

The EDP application specifies the types of engineering demand parameters (EDP) expected as output from the response simulation. It determines the EDP type from building properties in the BIM file, the type of event in the EVENT file, and the model information from the SAM file. It writes the type, location, and direction (DOF) of each EDP for a simulation in an EDP.json file, located in its corresponding simulation working directory. Note that in the EDP file, DOF=1,2 are assumed to correspond to perpendicular horizontal directions, and DOF=3 corresponds to the vertical direction.


The following options for EDP applications vary in the type of EDPs identified for the simulation output.
