A Variety of Analyses of a Steel Component

Model 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:

  • static
  • quasi-static
  • parametric
  • eigenfrequency
  • frequency response
  • transient
