Specilalized Techniques for Common Problems
- Non-coincident beams can be used to model reinforced concrete. The location of the beams need not coincide with the concrete elements making the problem set-up significantly easier and more realistic.
- Natural fragmentation models the failure of symmetric objects by including minor variation in the yield strength of each element.
- Fragmentation plots help visualize how a part will fragment when elements have failed.
- A wizard can be employed to build a brick or cinder-block wall with minimal input.
