Dear Karamba friends,
I am working on analyzing a system of bent and twisted beams.
Due to discretisation, I apply the bendings via initial strain component.
For torsion, I computed the torsion angle, but I don´t know how to quantify this value
regarding initial stress. I read the manual regarding initial stress and looked through examples, but this question still remains open to me.
A simple beam example is attached!
It would be great and highly appreciated if someone can help me with this issue!
