3rd Edition, D. Van Nostrand Co., Inc., New York, NY, 1956, pg. 80, article 14. Analysis Type(s): Static Analysis (ANTYPE = 0) with Large Deflection and Stress Stiffening Element Type(s): Elastic Shell Elements (SHELL63)
3-D Structural Solid Shell Elements (SOLSH190) Input Listing: vm139.dat Test Case
A rectangular plate whose length is large compared to its width is subjected to a uniform pressure p as shown.
The shorter edges are simply-supported. Determine the direct stress σx (MID) at the middle of the plate and the
maximum combined stress (direct plus bending) σx (BOT) at the bottom of the plate. Figure 139.1 Rectangular Plate Problem Sketch Material Properties
