Bulk Data Entry Controls the value of the Buckling Safety Factor of the Euler Buckling Force for the beams in the second stage of Lattice Optimization.


Parameter Values Description
BUCKSF Real ≥ 0.0

Default = 1.0

The specified Real value is multiplied to the applied buckling force on the lattice beam to provide a way to add a Safety Factor to Euler Buckling checks.

Therefore, in the second stage, the radii of the tapered beams are adjusted to handle the revised buckling loads based on the specified BUCKSF safety factor.
