A muckaround with the portal frame module.
Another basic Karamba model that lets you manipulate a simple portal frame. The frame has out of plane support and supports can be modelled as either fixed or pin/roller configurations.
As the same with the simply supported beam the file path must be assigned for the Steel I beam profile csv file.
This is an entry level Karamba file that I used to work on my final year project. It is a simply supported beam member that is being loaded about the centre of its span. The geometry is parametric and so is the structural data appended to the geometry.
To use the file you will need to right click the “path” data parameter and select the location of the “steel(cm).csv” file. This file is the I Section profile data for the beam members so that they can be selected using a slider utilising data from the Australian One Steel catalogue.
