Finding Buckling Load for Gridshell

Hello :slight_smile:

I am trying to find the buckling load which causes failure for this grid shell (file attached below). This is my first time finding the buckling load of the structure so I do not know how to go about it.
Can someone please help?

Thank you!

Hi @michela_m,

you can refer to the example on on how to perform a buckling analysis. However you need to ensure that you have axial normal forces in your elements to be able to perform such a buckling analysis.

Additional information can be found in the Manual

Thank you for your help! :slight_smile:
