Analysis Type(s): Static Analysis (ANTYPE = 0) Element Type(s): Elastic Shell Elements (SHELL63) Input Listing: vm17.dat Test Case A hinged cylindrical shell is subjected to a vertical point load (P) at its center. Find the vertical displacement (UY) at points A and B for the load of 1000 N. Figure 17.1 Hinged Shell Problem Sketch ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–49 VM17 Material Properties E = 3.10275 kN/mm2 υ = 0.3 Geometric Properties R = 2540 m Loading P = 1000 N = 254 m h = 6.35 m Θ = 0.1 rad Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes Due to symmetry, only a quarter of the structure is analyzed. The structure exhibits the nonlinear postbuckling behavior under the applied load. Therefore, a large deflection analysis is performed using the arc length solution technique. The results are observed in POST26. Results Comparison Target[1] ANSYS Ratio UY @ A, mm -30.0 -31.7 1.056 UY @ B, mm -26.0 -25.8 0.994 1. Target results are from graphical solution Fi...
