A Variety of Analyses of a Steel Component
Application ID: 183
This example shows a plane stress analysis of a mechanical component.
The component is cut from a 4 mm steel plate. The thickness is small compared to the length and breadth in the x-y plane. Due to this, and the fact that the applied loads lie in the x-y plane, the out-of-plane stress can be assumed to be negligible. The plane stress application mode is based on this assumption.
The modeling introduces the six analysis types in the Structural Mechanics Module:
- frequency response
