Query and retrieving structural analysis results

Query Results

Result queries allow for the designer to output results for specific queries related to particular structural elements. With the results, designers can use these to either design or guide updates to the structural analysis model.

Under the Solver tab for the structural analysis plug-in there will be a number of query options in-which can be input into the solver component.

Multiple queries can be input the solver component, however ensure that they are flattened or else it will for

Some of the typical query items are listed below:

Retrieving structural analysis results

Once the solver has run and analysis results have extracted into the Grasshopper environment, The results will become available from the solver component output.

If you are happy with the output results you can centralise the results within Grasshopper to export into another GH document or use within the current document.

Decomposing Structural Results

Once you have retrieved the desired the structural results there are a number of components which you can use to break down components of the results. (i.e the x, y , z force reactions of a Node reaction). Some of the decompose utilities are listed below:
