## Temperature Loading of a Tapered Cylinder

## Temperature Loading of a Tapered Cylinder

This validation test case models temperature loading of a tapered hollow thick cylinder with a spherical bottom flange section. The solid object is assumed to be clamped vertically, but allowed to expand horizontally due to a linear temperature gradient. The stress in the z-direction at the bottom inner point is …

## Deflection of a Bracket

## Deflection of a Bracket

In this example a three dimensional model of a solid 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 …

## Deformation of a Spanner

Tutorial example of calculating deformation and deflection in a spanner where the geometry is given in and imported from a STL CAD file. This model is available as an automated tutorial by selecting Model Examples and Tutorials… > Structural Mechanics > Deformation of a Spanner from the File menu, and also …

## Stress Analysis of a Thick Plate

## Stress Analysis of a Thick Plate

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 [1]. 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 …
