IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Cloud and its products. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Search existing ideas

Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,

Post your ideas
  1. Post an idea.

  2. Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.

  3. Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Analytical Engineering Analysis of 3D Shapes

Using volume integral( dx dy dz) to do a Analytical Engineering Analysis of 3D Shapes without using mesh based FEA. Like integration calculates area under curve and FEA do a filled rectangular mesh or cubic mesh approximation of shapes for engineering analysis here propose modified volume integral method to Analytical Engineering Analysis of 3D Shapes. Volume integral is where ∆x, ∆y, ∆z tends to zero. The difference between regular volume integral is that the function should change after each integration of volume integration ( 3 steps of integration). For example,.

 Required continuous smooth function of stress or heat in a 3D solid shape

 The boundary conditions are given as limits (u(x), u(y), u(z) .. v(x), v(y), v(z) )of integration

 This is a new engineering analysis where a continuous plot of result is made; unlike FEA, where discrete results are made that depends on size or number of elements. this will revolutionize engineering analysis where the results of engineering analysis are like a vector image rather than raster image
