Model Data

Type: structural mechanics

Physics Modes: solid stress strain

Keywords: linear elasticity

In this example a three dimensional model of a bracket with a cylindrical hole is subjected to an external load. The vertical side of the bracket is fixed to a wall (thus zero displacement boundary conditions are applied there), while the outer end of the bracket is loaded with a force of 104 Pa in the negative z-direction. The resulting bracket displacements and deformation are examined.
