Double Girder Gantry Crane + Geometry Simplification


#1

This Double Girder Gantry Crane Analysis was created to demonstrate various techniques used to simplify a geometry for simulation and to demonstrate the use of elastic elements to stabilize members where “physical contacts” are used.

If you are interested to learn more about this topic, @BenLewis will be hosting a webinar ‘Preparing a Geometry for Simulation with Custom Machines and SimScale’ on July 12th.
