VM240: Thermal Expansion of Rigid Beams in a Composite Bar Overview Reference: J.M. Gere, S.P. Timoshenko, Mechanics of Materials, 2nd Edition, PWS Publishers, 1984, p. 20-21,71 Analysis Type(s): Static Analysis (ANTYPE = 0) Element Type(s): Nonlinear (8-Node) Solid Elements (SOLID185) Multipoint Constraint Elements - Rigid Beams (MPC184) Input Listing: vm240.dat Test Case A composite bar consists of two base materials with 25 rigid beams embedded along its length. A coefficient of thermal expansion is defined for only the rigid beams. Compare the stresses resulting in both solid composite materials when a temperature is applied.
