Unformatted text preview: gs were issued for each element type. Enhanced strain formulation (KEYOPT,1,2,2) was used for SOLID185. Full integration (KEYOPT,1,2,1) was used for SOLID186. Pure displacement formulation (KEYOPT,1,6,0) was necessary for SOLID187.

ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. Part II. Benchmark Study Descriptions Chapter 2: Overview This manual also provides information on the applicability, selection and performance of ANSYS finite elements, meshing algorithms, and solution algorithms by a series of benchmark test cases. The benchmark studies are designed to illustrate both proper, and in some cases, improper application of finite element techniques in various modeling situations. Improper use may take the form of inappropriate element selection, mesh discretization, or master degree of freedom selection....
