karamba is an interactive, parametric finite element program. It lets you analyze the response of 3-dimensional beam and shell structures under arbitrary loads.

karamba is being developed by Clemens Preisinger in cooperation with Bollinger-Grohmann-Schneider ZTGmbH Vienna.

Location of the supports in the cross-section

Dear Karamba users,I have a problem with the location of supports in the cross-section of my structure. I have made a simple girder bridge structure consisting of two longitudinal steel girders,…Continue

Tie rod problem

Hi, I try to modelize a bridge with an arch and some tie rods which are not vertical. But my tie rods are not reacting like I wish. So I made very simple model. A top beam that symbolize the arch, a…Continue

Nonlinear concrete analysis

Hello,Is it possible to modify second-order analysis so that Karamba would use stiffnesses calculated using a custom VB-code block? I'm trying to create a nonlinear concrete column analysis using…Continue

Karamba is an interactive finite element program for frames and trusses.

is this addon something like sap2000 component? for frame structure ?
