Simulate Early, Simulate Often... In Rhino
I would like to use scan and solve to do conceptual analysis of bridge structures. I would like to test a variety of cable stayed, inclined arch, stress ribbon, arch suspended deck bridge structures utilizing steel box girder decks or postentioned precast concrete deck panels. Is it possible to utilize more than one material (i.e. steel cables or tendons and concrete) for an analysis?
If scan and solve is not an appropriate avenue for this type of work, do you have a recommendation for other types of (affordable) 3D software?
