MEC626 (F11) Lab Project # 2: ANSYS for Plane Stress Analysis Prepared by Dr. J. Cao 1 RYERSON UNIVERSITY Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering MEC626: Applied Finite Elements Lab Project #2: ANSYS for Plane Stress Analysis Instructor: Dr. J. Cao Note: The lab report for this project should be submitted on time. Late report will receive no marks. Use ANSYS to solve the following plane stress problems. Problem 1 : bookshelf bracket under uniform loading Below is a steel bracket ( 3 . 0 , / 10 29 2 6 in lb E , the radius of the hole is in r 125 . 0 ) used to support a bookshelf. The bracket is loaded uniformly along its top surface, and its left edge is fixed. Under the given loading and constraints, use element type “8node183” to: (1) plot the deformed shape; and (2) determine the principal and the von Mises stresses in bracket.

MEC626 (F11) Lab Project # 2: ANSYS for Plane Stress Analysis Prepared by Dr. J. Cao 2 Instructions for Solving Problem 1 Using ANSYS I. Treat the entire geometry as the shown configuration. II. Give the configuration a Title (such as 'Bookshelf Bracket_your name'). In the Utility menu bar select File > Change Title: To get the title to appear immediately, select Utility Menu > Plot > Replot III. Form the geometry: 1.
