4. Beam Strain and Stress Tests

These tests check rod and beam strain and stresses generated with simple models, comparing results to available analytical ones

  • 4_beams_in_line.mdl tests strains and stresses of a row of beam elements loaded with prescribed displacements (ebc).

  • 4_rods_in_line.mdl tests strains and stresses of a row of rod elements.

  • cantilever3.mdl tests strains and stresses in a cantilever beam, comparing results to analytical ones. The length L of the cantilever >> Height/Width, such that shear deformations are negligible. Beam properties are defined with the properties MDL beam property specification.

  • single_rod_element.mdl tests strains and stresses of a single rod element.
