Tref = 70°F
Ta = 170°F = 10 in
t = 0.1 in α1 = 1 x 10-5 in/in-°F
α2 = 2 x 10-5 in/in-°F Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
The width w is arbitrary for the solution of this problem and is chosen as 1 to produce reasonably-shaped elements.
At the “fixed” end, only the center node is constrained to match the simple beam theory used in the reference,
and allow unrestrained bending in the Y-Z plane. Results Comparison
