Any geometry to slab

ยท One min read

I recently came across an interesting case from one of our users who was trying to analyse a free-form surface.

FEM-Design is mostly use for slab and wall (both geometry are flat) but the user needs the software to calculate something different. Something that it is nowadays called "free-form"!

How can we overcome the issue?

Discretization is the key concept! What you can do, it is to subdivide the surface in several small triangles and feed FEM-Design with those.
