A cantilevered plate of length , width b, and thickness t is fixed at one end and subjected to a pure bending
moment M at the free end. Determine the true (large deflection) free-end displacements and rotation, and the
top surface stress at the fixed end, using shell elements. Figure 26.1 Cantilever Problem Sketch Material Properties

b = 1 mm
t = 1 mm Loading
M = 15.708 N-mm Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
The large deflection option is chosen (NLGEOM,ON) and shell elements are used to match the reference's assumptions and test case definition. Since the geometry is closer to that of a beam, a shell element is not the
usual element type to solve problems of this geometry.
The free-end nodes are coupled in y-rotations so that the bending moment M can be applied to only one end
node. The load is applied in two equal increments, using the analysis restart option (solely for validation and
demonstration of ANTYPE,,REST)...
