The benchmarks are categorized into VMDXX test cases and VMCXX test cases (where XX is the problem number).
The VMD series is specifically designed to test individual finite element performance under distorted, or irregular shapes.
The VMC series is designed to test solution accuracy and convergence for a series of test cases that undergo increasing
mesh refinement or use alternate element types. The benchmark studies follow the documentation of the VM test
cases in this manual.
Three types of analyses are included in the benchmark tests:
• Static analysis (ANTYPE = 0) • Mode frequency analysis (ANTYPE = 2) • Transient analysis (ANTYPE = 4) ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. Chapter 2: Overview
The benchmark test cases are drawn from a variety of resources, such as NAFEMS (National Agency for Finite
Element Methods and Standards) based in the United Kingdom, proposed benchmarks in the literature,...
