Using Karamba3D I want to optimize the cross sections of beams considering only maximum vertical displacement or ideally the local vertical deformation (limited by L/300 under SLS load case conditions).
Karamba’s “Optimize Cross Section” has a maximum displacement node but it only considers global displacement rather than vertical displacement.
My plan is to somehow “filter” the displacement of the beams to only vertical displacement and feed this into Optimize Cross Section and define the limit for maximum vertical deformation here.
Does this plan make any sense? Any other ideas?
