GSA Analysis

 

Form finding and fabric analysis

 

 

Form finding

 

Dynamic relaxation method with the following options

 

  • Soap film for fabric structures

  • Force density for cable net structures

  • Applied force for pure compression or tension structures

  • Geodesic, Bar and Free spacer elements

  • Spacer forces from form finding saved as prestress forces for static analysis

 

Fabric analysis

 

  • Non-linear analysis of foils and fabrics

  • Zero thickness elements with optional tension only capacity

  • Combine fabric elements with structural cables and members
