It may be interesting. You may see engineering evolution in dynamics.
A genetic algorithm approach is used for optimum design of space frames so
as to minimize the weight of the structure.
Finite Element method is used with finite deflections of hinges and
stability analysis of the whole structure (it?s important for tall
Structure may have any number of support ties at any position
and any number of horizontal and vertical loads with possibility of
implantation of any number forbidden areas for bars and hinges to get
necessary restrictions on shapes.
Anaglyph stereo view of results is available with red/blue glasses.
