Unformatted text preview: D Structural Solid Elements (PLANE42) 2-D 4-Node Structural Solid Elements (PLANE182) 2-D 8-Node Structural Solid Elements (PLANE82, PLANE183) Input Listing: vmc2.dat Test Case An elliptic membrane structure of thickness t is subjected to a uniformly distributed outward pressure P. Monitor the tangential edge stress σy at target point 1 for a series of uniform mesh refinements using quadrilateral and triangular elements. Compare the effect of increased mesh refinement with the percent energy error norm.
