Particular way/algorithm that Discovery Live places constraints on underconstrained models?

    • dominic.lopez

      Using the example of a uniform, fixed end cantilever beam and comparing that to the same beam geometry (without the fixed end), the results vary drastically.
      Is there a way to tell/approximate where Discovery Live puts its own constraints for analysis on the geometry's model?

      I'm not sure I understand your question/example.

      The results of an analysis of a cantilever beam with a fixed support on one end and a force applied to the opposite end would have to be different than the "results" of a cantilever beam with only a force and no fixed support.  

      I'm not aware of any constraints being automatically applied to an under constrained model by the software such that the results would be realistic.
