interstory drift

      Hi,

      I have a model of a building that is excited by an earthquake. I would like to animate the inter-story drift, which is the difference between displacements of each floor with the one story above it. Is there any way that I can show it in LS-DYNA? or modify the results or d3plot so that I can show it?

      You can plot the displacement of two adjacent floors and then use the Expression option in the LSPP plot window to plot the difference of the two
