# Verification & Validation

=20

Next we must verify and validate our experimental results to insure that= ANSYS did not make an error.  The easiest way to do this is to compar= e critical buckling loads.

=20

The theoretical critical buckling load we calculated in our pre-ana= lysis is =3D 1.51398E+7 N.

=20

The experimental critical buckling load calculated by ANSYS is =3D 1.509= 1E+7 N.

=20

We find that our resulting percent error is =3D ((1.51398-1.5091)/1.5139= 8)*100 =3D 0.322%

Therefore, our ANSYS analysis is accurate, and there is no need to furth= er refine the mesh.
