The stress stiffening and large deflection capabilities are used to model this effect. The geometric and loading symmetry is used to model only half the plate with appropriate symmetry boundary conditions at the midspan. Two analysis solutions are performed. The first solution (without large deflection and stress stiffening) results in a small deflection static solution (with no coupling between in-plane and transverse deflections). The second solution (with large deflection and stress stiffening) results in a converged solution with the coupling effects. POST1 is used to report nodal stresses along the plate middle and bottom. Note that these stresses are based on the original geometry and include the element rotations, due to the large deflection option. The above two solutions are...
