This paper presents some practical recommendations for nonlinear structural analysis in DIANA.

After presenting the basic convergence issues, practical recommendations for both modelling considerations and analysis procedures of a structural finite element model in DIANA are described. Also, specific recommendations for the analysis of reinforced concrete and masonry structures are given.
