FEA analysis – plugin. Ansys + Rhino

28 03 2010

Using c# with rhino and FORTRAN with Ansys I was able to create a FEA testing environment within Rhino. This enables the designer to get feedback on the proposed structural system allowing him to make changes during the conceptual phase of a design. This process does is not intended to replace the structural engineer by any means but rather provide information to better the design before ever approaching the engineer. The current plug-in evaluates stress and displacement for lattice structures using tube elements. Surface and solid interfaces are nearly completed and will be posed soon.
