What kind of analyze algorithm should i use?

Hello :slight_smile:
I have made a bending-active gridshell, which is therefore exposed to an initial strain. My question is what kind of analyze algorithm i should use? Analyze I or analyze II?

Hope someone can answer my question :slight_smile:

Hi Tobias,

Uploading a simple example would help. Analysis choice depends on what youΒ΄re looking for, perhaps you can tell us more about it. Besides Analyze I and II there exist Non-linear (WIP) and Large Deformation analyses too. This latter one is more intended for form finding.

I hope this helps!
