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
