algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I have some questions about the "large deformation" component. I don't understand the relationship between the applied force, the increment and the deformation:
for example, if I apply a point load of 1 kN and set the Increments value to 250 does it mean that in complex I apply 250 kN or that in each iteration karamba applies 0.004 kN (=1 kN/250)?
I am working on a shell structure, I attach the definition of the work I am trying to develop.
in case you do not specify 'MaxDisp' then 0.004 kN are added in each step. If however 'MaxDisp' is given then the load will be increased until a component of the displacement vector of a node reaches the predefined maximum.
thanks for the explanation, now it is all clear.
