Shell_Optimization.gh (71.3 KB) Shell_Optimization.3dm (6.2 MB)
I am having some issues using Karamba. I am modeling a very thin reinforced-concrete shell, supported with 5 supports. My goal is to optimize the cross section of the structure. Yet, I don’t really understand how to efficiently use the different Karamba functions listed below, despite having read the Karamba notice and checked the forum :
Optimize Cross-Section : what is the difference between Shell-Std Const and Shell-Std Var, did I use it properly in my Gh file to optimize the cross section of my shell ?
Optimize Reinforcement (reinforced-concrete shell) : I linked it to the OptiCroSec component, but it doesn’t change anything, and only says “XX crushed faces” …
BModes : This function can only be used using AnalyzeThII, how to know if the structure buckles when using the Optimize Cross Section function ?
You can find my Rhino and Grasshopper files attached.
Can you help me understanding all these functions to optimize my structure ?
Thanks in advance for your precious help,
