MichellStructures

This is a web-based simulation tool that visualizes geometric properties and static internal forces in a loaded Michell cantilever anchored at two points. A live demo is available at apps.amandaghassaei.com/MichellStructures.

Michell geometry is parameterized by total length (Length), distance between attachment points (Height), and number of truss layers (n) - additional x and y scaling may also be applied. Internal static forces are calculated using the method of joints.

Instructions: Drag on the applied force to change its magnitude and direction. Use the sliders to adjust geometric parameters of the Michell truss. Mouse over a beam to see more information about its properties.

Built by Amanda Ghassaei as a homework assignment for Computational Structural Design and Optimization.
