The fiber beam-column post-buckling element has been formulated and implemented in the non-linear program DRAIN-3DX to predict Buckling, Post-buckling and hysteresis behaviour of tubular Struts and Portals. In this element both material and geometric non-linearities are considered. The element is applied to simulate post buckling and hysteric response of tubular members subjected to cyclic loading. Also Psuedo-Static analysis of X-braced frame subjected to cyclic load has been perfomed. The predicted overall response matched well with the available experimental and other analytical results.
