Unformatted text preview: choosing. For each run you should determine and show the following: a.) Print out window showing your model with marked dimensions and loading values. b.) Print out window showing your two meshes with numbers of nodes and elements. c.) Plot contour distributions of the horizontal (σ x ) and vertical (σ y ) normal stresses and the von Mises stress. d.) Using the cursor probing method, determine the maximum and minimum values of the stresses in part c.) e.) Compare your maximum FEA local stress σ x around the notch with the stress concentration curves provided. Note that K t = σ max / σ o . Comment on your comparisons. Problem B...
