RF-FORM-FINDING | Results

Product Feature

The results of the form‑finding process are a new shape and corresponding inner forces. Usual results such as deformations, forces, stresses, and others can be displayed in the RF‑FORM‑FINDING case.

This prestressed shape is available as the initial state for all other load cases and combinations in the structural analysis.

For more ease when defining load cases, the NURBS transformation can be used (Calculation Parameters / Form‑Finding). This feature moves the original surfaces and cables into the position after form‑finding.

By using the grid points of surfaces or the definition nodes of NURBS surfaces, free loads can be situated on selected parts of the structure.
