Grasshopper workflow

Slender structures, like columns and towers, are characterized by their elongated shape and high length-to-width ratio. However, stability is a critical concern for these structures. Buckling, a sudden collapse under compressive forces, poses a significant risk. โš ๏ธ

Addressing stability in slender structures is crucial for safety and integrity. By employing design measures and thorough analysis, engineers create structures that can withstand loads and maintain stability over their lifespan. ๐Ÿ—๏ธ

From 22.5.0, FEM-Design API gives you access to the stability analysis calculation which it will allows you to identify critical issues on your structure.
