The new OpenSees Examples Manual has been released:

http://opensees.berkeley.edu/OpenSees/manuals/ExamplesManual/HTML/

This new version has an extensive library of example scripts, ranging
from simple input files, to more versatile model-building and analysis
scripts.

The following are a few of the many OpenSees features demonstrated in
the examples:
* use of variables
* definition and use of units
* separate model-building and analysis files
* use previously-defined procedures to simplify input
* introduce procedure to read database input motion files
* 2D & 3D frames with fixed numbers of stories and bays
* 2D & 3D frames with variable number of stories and bays
* automated generation of nodes and elements
* graphical display of model: nodes, mode shape, and deformed shape

The following types of analyses are also demonstrated in the examples:
* static pushover analysis
* static reversed cyclic analysis
* dynamic sine-wave input analysis (uniform excitation)
* dynamic earthquake-input analysis (uniform excitation)
* dynamic sine-wave input analysis (multiple-support excitation)
* dynamic earthquake-input analysis (multiple-support excitation)
* dynamic bidirectional earthquake-input analysis (uniform excitation)
