Jump to: navigation, search

QUAD4 files are exported from SMS for use with a proprietary finite element program called QUAD-4. QUAD-4 uses an equivalent-liner soil model. Basic input to QUAD4M includes the two-dimensional soil profile, equivalent-linear soil properties, and the time history of horizontal ground motion. The file format is a specific format listed in the QUAD-4 documentation.
