Service Life Estimation of elements

Hello, would it be possible in Karamba 3D to calculate the degradation rythm of building elements (shells and joints) according to the forces that are applied on them, in order to find out their life cycle?

Hello @theogerg,
there is no built in functionality for shake down analysis in Karamba3D.
You could implement it by analyzing a structural model repeatedly and changing its cross section or material properties locally. This could be done via the Assemble/Disassemble-component in Grasshopper or using a script. See here (page 10 f.) for a script example regarding cross section updates.

Great! Thank you very much Clemens!
