# Tensile Bar (Results-Interpretation)

Created using ANSYS 13.0

## Lear= ning Goal

This ANSYS tutorial focuses on the interpretation and verificat= ion of FEA results (rather than on obtaining an FEA solution from= scratch). The ANSYS solution files are provided as a download. We read the= solution into ANSYS Mechanical and then move directly t= o reviewing the results critically. We are particularly interested in the c= omparison of FEA results with hand calculations. The objective is to help y= ou learn the process of interpreting FEA results critically. There are other tutorials to h= elp you learn the process of developing an ANSYS solution from scratch.

## Problem Specification

A steel bar is mounted in a rigid wall and axially loaded at the end by = a force P =3D 2 kN as shown in the figure below. The bar dimensions are ind= icated in the figure. The bar is so thin that there is no significant stres= s variation through the thickness. Neglect gravity. The material properties are:

• Young's modulus E =3D 200 GPa
• Poisson ratio =3D 0.3

In this exercise, you are presented with the numerical solution to the a= bove problem obtained from finite-element analysis (FEA) using ANSYS softwa= re. Compare FEA results for the stress distribution presented to you with t= he corresponding analytical solution. Justify agreements and discrepancies = between the two approaches (FEA vs. Analytical).
