This is a benchmark and validation model for linear elasticity where
an elliptical thick plate with a hole is subjected to a uniform
pressure load of 106 MPa . The outer surface is
assumed to be constrained from expansion, in addition to the center
line which is fixed in the z-direction. Symmetry is also utilized so
that only a quarter of the geometry is modeled.
This model is available as an automated tutorial by selecting Model
