Scan&Solve replied to Chai Chen Chu's discussion 'Hinge support for folded plate structure'
"So what you really have here is a large number of thin (essentially 2D) plates connected by hinges.  Scan&Solve currently supports bonded assemblies of 3D solids,  which will not help you.  Sorry."

Scan&Solve replied to Chai Chen Chu's discussion 'Hinge support for folded plate structure'
"Could please post (or email to a picture of what you want to analyze and what the restraint/loads may be.   Otherwise,  it is hard to tell what the question is. "

Scan&Solve replied to Will Sixel's discussion 'Resolution and Convergence'
"We agree that our software is awesome for structural analysis  :-) Please see the documentation that lists which models in Rhino are supported.  If Rhino thinks that the model is solid,  then the model is good enough for SnS.…"

Scan&Solve replied to Will Sixel's discussion 'Resolution and Convergence'
"The best reference is probably this journal paper.   We are not aware of any specific studies related to femur bone or skull.  Of course, every application is different,  but the principles of using FEA are pretty much the…"

Scan&Solve replied to Will Sixel's discussion 'Resolution and Convergence'
"Comparison  of Scan&Solve and classical FEA can be found at this page,  where you can also find the link to detailed technical paper.   A popular introduction written some time ago can be found here.  You can find…"

Scan&Solve replied to Will Sixel's discussion 'Resolution and Convergence'
"Generally speaking,  this kind of benchmarking requires setting up identical testing conditions and assumptions...  which may defeat the purpose of the whole experiment.   For example,  Scan&Solve enforces the restraints over…"

Scan&Solve replied to Leslie Dean Brown's discussion 'Optimise geometry'
"Yes,  of course.  A proper technical term is "topology optimization".    It is not that difficult to implement.   In fact,  it can be done using SnSScript.   However,  using such technics is not all…"

Scan&Solve replied to Eric Foy's discussion 'Gluing of near-proximity surfaces'
"This distance is controlled implicitly by choosing the resolution.  As the number of elements gets larger,  their size gets smaller,  allowing resolving smaller and smaller features.   To see if your small features are resolved,…"

Scan&Solve WIP now with WOOD!

In the latest version of the Scan&Solve WIP (2015.8.13) now supports assemblies of wood and other materials in glued contact.  The following brief introduction shows it in use:

Scan&Solve replied to Jeff's discussion 'What kind of analysis method?'
"I assume that IGA refers to "isogeometric analysis".   A short answer is no,  it is not similar.  The idea behind IGA is to use the same representation (often,  NURBSs) for both geometry and analysis.  In contrast,…"

Scan&Solve replied to Francesco calia's discussion 'Hydrostatic load on simple structure'
"It is impossible to tell what you are trying to do without the boundary conditions (restraints, loads).   But you are trying to analyze a >5m structure that is 4mm thick,  with solid elements.   A 5m x 5m square sheet is 25…"
