Model Data

Type: structural mechanics

Physics Modes: euler bernoulli beam

Keywords: linear elasticity validation

A test case for a one dimensional model of a cantilever beam which is fixed to a wall at the left end. Using Euler-Bernoulli beam theory three test cases are studied for which reference solutions are available, a point load at the left end, a uniform distributed load, and the natural vibration modes and frequencies without load.
