Concrete Column Optimization


Has any had success in using the optimizer of karamba to provide concrete column sizes based on set utilization. The optimizer is made in such a way to optimize steel column only. I was wondering if anyone has a work around to make it work for concrete elements?

Hi, one method that helps with the optimisation for concrete is to alter the tensile strength of the material so it matches the compressive strength. This will give you more realistic results for preliminary concrete design.
