Scan-and-Solve for Rhino

Simulate Early, Simulate Often... In Rhino

Hi,

one question:
dialog box of SnS, "Loads" what's the difference between "force vector for face" and"scalar force for face"?

"Scalar force for face" is not redundant?

Germano,

Vector force allows you to specify the direction the force is applied.  A scalar force is applied perpendicular to the surface like a pressure, except SnS computes the pressure from the load you specify.  See this link for more details.

Thank you for the question.
