I´m trying to include wind loads in the optimization process for some lattice structures using OptiCroSec component. Unfortunately, the wind load depends on cross-section external diameter.
Is it possible to consider some wind pressure [kN/m2] instead of line force [kN/m] in OptiCroSec to automatically update wind loads during the cross-section optimization process?
At this moment I´m using a Block type Beam Load (global proj. enabled), but the line force [kN/m] must be predefined… In other words, I have to manually update the wind exposed areas of the beams until convergence.
Any more elegant workaround in Karamba?
Thanks a lot!
