# Large Deformation Analysis (karamba)

Component Index > Karamba > Algorithms > **Large Deformation Analysis (karamba)**

### Does incremental geometrically non-linear analysis for loads in load case zero.

## Inputs

Name | ID | Description | Type |

**Model** | Model | Model for which to calculate large deflections for load case zero. | Model |

**Iterations** | Inc | Number of load increments. After each increment the model geometry gets updated. | Integer |

**Maximum displacement [m]** | MaxDisp | If MaxDisp >0 [m] then this is the prescribed value of the maximum deflection [m] at the end of form finding: In each iteration the maximum deflection is scaled to MaxDisp/Inc. If MaxDisp<0 the process is load-controlled: In each iteration the external load gets scaled to 1/Inc. | Number |

## Outputs

Name | ID | Description | Type |

**Calculated Model** | Model | Model with displacements calculated | Model |

**Maximum displacement [m]** | Disp | maximum displacement [m] of each load-case of the model at end-points and mid-points of elements | Number |
