EX_PLANESTRESS4 Example of thermally induced stress.

[ FEA, OUT ] = EX_PLANESTRESS4( VARARGIN ) NAFEMS T1 Benchmark example for thermally induced stress. A 20x20 mm plate is subjected to thermal load at a circular spot with radius 1 mm. Plane stress assumption and symmetry can be assumed. The stress in the y-direction is sought just outside the thermal spot.

Accepts the following property/value pairs.

Input       Value/{Default}        Description
E           scalar {100e9}         Modulus of elasticity
nu          scalar {0.3}           Poissons ratio
hmax        scalar {4e-4}          Max grid cell size
sfun        string {sflag1}        Shape function for displacements
iphys       scalar 0/{1}           Use physics mode to define problem (=1)
iplot       scalar 0/{1}           Plot solution (=1)
Output      Value/(Size)           Description
fea         struct                 Problem definition struct
out         struct                 Output struct
