How is the analysis model created by the CBFEM
The analysis model is created automatically without the essential input of the user. It´s CBFEM key feature. You don’t have to be a FEM expert to use IDEA StatiCa, and that’s the whole point! So, everything is happening in the background in an automated way that allows the user to focus only on the geometry and the application of loads.
Basically, the user can only play with the shape of the model.
