# a model of a solid using trusses to approximate internal stresses?

my question is as follows: could the stresses on a solid body be aproximated with a discrete model based on trusses?, this is, that the result yielded by the analysis of the truss structure will resemble the actual stress distribution?

And does this have something in common with fea modelling(meshing)?

• Depending on the type of network interaction, the Poisson's ratio of a discrete spring network is either 0.25 or 0.33. You have to keep that in mind when applying any such analogy. Jul 31, 2021 at 4:27
