     So.ph.i. – SOftware for PHenomenological Implementations

 

 

So.ph.i. is a software that helps calibrating graphically skeleton curves and hysteresis loops for numerical implementations. The software is designed for zero-lenght non-linear springs and it's specialized in wooden connectors (angulars, hold-downs and screws – single or in parallel – and diagonal springs for wooden walls).
