3-D 20-Node Structural Solid Elements (SOLID95) Input Listing: vmd1.dat Test Case
A straight cantilever beam, fixed at one end, is subjected to a unit load. Determine the displacement at the end
of the beam for unit loads including extension, in-plane shear, out-of-plane shear, and twist (where applicable).
Examine the influence of rectangular, trapezoidal, and parallelogram element shape models on tip displacement
and the percent energy error norm. Figure D1.1 Straight Cantilever Beam Problem Sketch xwv"Su"S Asb"p1ddX fdb"YWUS2R
