This article is a continuation of the Simulation of Lattice Structures, where we will be comparing the three different methods of simulating lattices. The model is a BCC Lattice between two panels. Look for the download of this Case Study at the bottom of this article.
The gif below shows the scaled displacement movement for all of the models.
The images below represent a direct comparison in Displacement values and Von Mises Stress values. The images are in the same order as above (Solid Elements, Beam Elements, and Homogenization). Scroll below to see the range of values.
Computational Time and Results Comparison
Below is the direct comparison of the three different methods, comparing computational time, stresses, and displacement.
