Concrete shell optimization


I am optimising a concrete shell. I have tried using the cross section optimiser and this worked, allowing the shell to have a variety of depths.

Is there a way of optimising the shell based on a maximum stress value? I have a concrete which has a tensile strength of around 4.5MPa. So ideally, I would like to optimise this shell so that the maximum tensile force in the shell is around 4/4.5 Mpa.


this is not possible in the standard Cross Section optimisation component, however you can set up an optimisation with Galapagos which will select cross sections based on the tensile forces
