I’m trying to obtain tensile stress in spring members after formfinding. I’ve attached a little example. As far as I understand it can be done calculating strain (reffered to rest length), and multiplying it by Young’s modulus. Is it correct way to do that in Kangaroo2? Or maybe I’m missing something.
I’m asking, because when I exported formfound geometry to FEM software and applied that pre-stress I didn’t get expected results.
Any advice would be appreciated.
