gifEdge Strut Ellipse Solid


A = Area
x = Distance from neutral axis to farthest fibre
I = Moment of Inertia
S = Section Modulus
r = Radius of gyration


The strut width has been deliberatelty increased to show the geometry.

The struts are built with the quad-edge passing through the profile center. The line which bisects the dihedral is coincident with the semi-minor axis.

To account for hubs, you can specify the hub radius in the ‘Strut Options’ where you can also specify the strut ingress distancei.e., what portion of the strut is clamped, fixed or inserted within the hub.
