Full displacement constraints placed upon three corners in the model midplane does not allow generation of
significant reaction forces. A pure bending condition is created by the application of a pressure gradient on the
faces of elements lying in the z = 0 and z = L planes. The linear gradient varies from -0.18979 on the bottom to
0.18979 on the top.
σz = (Mzy) / (Ic)
σZ = stress in z-direction
Mz = effective moment, z-direction
y = distance from neutral surface
Ic = second moment of area about the horizontal centroidal axis
Ic = ( W H3 ) for the rectangular ends of the block 12 Results Comparison
