remain closed, including one set at 4.18 in. from the bottom. Note that the integration points are printed
only if the element has cracked. A more exact comparison with theory could be obtained with more
elements along the depth of the beam (and thus a closer spacing of integration points). 2. Stresst = SAXL in the spars (elements 13 and 14). 3. Stressc = SX in element 1 at nodes 9, 10, 19, or 20. 1–324 ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 00...
