1 ABAQUS Tutorial – 2D Truss Analysis Problem: Determine the nodal displacements and element stresses for the truss shown below (ref. Logan’s text example 3.5 pp 81-84). Use E=30x10 6 psi and A=2 in 2 . Compare to text solution: d 1x = 0.414e-2 in , d 1y = -1.59e-2 in, element stresses = -1035, 1471, and 3965 psi.
