Unformatted text preview: is used for approximating the circular boundary with a straight-sided element. Nodal coupling
is used at the boundaries. An axial traction of 15,000 psi is applied to the edge of the element to simulate the
closed-end effect. The internal pressure is applied as an equivalent negative pressure on the exterior (face 1) of
the element. Results Comparison

A tie rod is subjected to the action of a tensile force F and a uniform lateral load p. Determine the maximum deflection zmax, the slope Θ at the left-hand end, and the maximum bending moment Mmax. In addition, determine
the same three quantities for the unstiffened tie rod (F = 0). Figure 21.1 Tie Rod Problem Sketch Material...
