I am looking to optimize the structure of a cantilevered slab.
I have found a way to do this using Millipede, particularly referencing the “004_leaf” example included by the developers.
However, I’d like to use Karamba instead given that the software seems to have a fresh and vibrant support community online.
Is there a way that I can achieve the same branching pattern which emerges through the Millipede example by using Karamba? I have included an attempt at setting up the problem, but would appreciate any and all guidance. It seems that I cannot “Step” in the same way I can in Millipede to allow for the branching pattern to emerge. Is there analogous functionality?
Setup in Millipede and the output (after pressing the Step button on the FE Solver several times)
Mimicking (or at least attempting to) the setup within Karamba.
