Double Layer Space Frame Using ABAQUS
The “Structural Numerical Research Center” provides numerous numerical models to assist scientists and researchers all over the world. For the last 13 years, we have always aimed to improve engineering knowledge and develop the findings. A space frame or space structure (3D truss) is a rigid, lightweight, truss-like structure constructed from interlocking struts in a geometric pattern. Space frames can be used to span large areas with few interior supports. Double layer grids are an important family of space structures used to cover large spaces and for ease of handling, flexibility in fabrication and speedy on-site erection, these structures are mainly prefabricated.
Therefore, according to the interest of architects, the research of structural engineers continues for the development of such structures. Because these structures have various types, researchers have conducted considerable research on them. One of the pioneering universities in the field of space structures is the University of Surrey, England.
This ABAQUS model (Double Layer Space Frame Using ABAQUS) is based on a laboratory sample. The model describing Full FEM analysis of space frame considering nonlinear behavior of material. So, by evaluating this numerical model, you’ll be able to simulate any type of this structures and extract the contour of stresses, strains, force and displacements. You can watch model description below. Please note that visitors should read the terms and conditions section before making a purchase. We hope that this educational product will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in such structures, and thank you in advance for subscribing to our YouTube channel.
