"Thanks Richard, Although I do not understand all of your reply. I'll try to respond. >In my opinion, jut only to consider the worst situation, that is the roof has reached the support(the mast),but the the support 'Gone'(No…"

"The retractable roof looks cool. In my opinion, jut only to consider the worst situation, that is the roof has reached the support(the mast),but the the support 'Gone'(No constraints there). If the deflection is acceptable, you may…"

"Hi Mael, Good suggestion. At the moment S&S only supports a mono volume. Being a naval architect I've done some testing at a structure and wrote down some experiences both in a S&S discussion and a blog article As you can see, I had…"

Solid versus hollow test with Rhino design

My latest project contains a retractable roof (www.villo.nl).Now it is an interesting question what the z-displacement is just before it is supported by the mast. The roof will be made of an aluminum frame covered with aluminum sheeting.First I did a Scan and Solve test as if it is a solid piece of aluminum and specified a scalar force for the gravity. Then the question raised; what's the difference with a hollow structure made of frames, stiffeners and…See More

This is a useful application of Scan and Solve

"I cannot tell you if a single solid is a reasonable approximation of a complex structure. The way individual structural members are manufactured and joined may be also important (or not). All I can say is that you are using Scan&Solve as it was…"

"Thanks Vadim. Yes I can understand that it is important to run at different resolutions. In reality I will not have 'the pipe connections' and by placing them near the neutral line I hoped it doesn't affect the stress simulation. If…"

Vadim Shapiro replied to Gerard Petersen's discussion 'Solid versus hollow test with Rhino design'
"This looks great and appear to make sense. Thank you for posting this example. However, you should be cautious: this is just one numerical computation of an idealized model, and you may need to do a lot more before making important engineering…"
