Analysis and Solver

Analysis and solver for structural analysis

Depending on the structural analysis program and the development level of the particular plug-in, there are generally a number of different analysis options that can be used when setting up for analysis of a structural model.

Most programs do this slightly different so it is important to understand how each analysis program deals with this.

Solver

gg###Solver

For each plug-in a solver component can be used to trigger the running of a structural analysis model and retrieve those results back into Grasshopper.

Remember to disable the solver by setting Enabled input to false until you are ready to solve.

The main inputs required prior to running the solver are:

  • The load cases and combination to be solved.

  • Result queries for the given load cases and combinations
