How can I structural analyze the brick dome?


I created a dome with masonry technique. The entire dome is made of bricks. But bricks are not planar. Many plugins I’ve seen work with mesh surfaces. I can’t create the dome from mesh surfaces. Because the mesh system does not work when you divide the dome into equal parts. Is there a way to analyze brick elements in Grasshopper? I am attaching the code related to modeling of the dome.

Amazing work again. Thank you. I will try with this approaching. I want to ask one more question. Can structural behavior be analyzed with DEM (Discrete Element Method)?

No idea i don’t know about DEM
