Numerical Results

The following video shows how to plot the deformed shape and use it to check if the displacement constraints have been applied correctly.  We next take a look at at


 variation in the model. We interrogate

Verification and Validation

  • Check that the solution agrees with the mathematical model

    • Are the boundary conditions on displacement and traction satisfied?

    • Is equilibrium satisfied?

      • Do the reaction forces balance the applied load?

  • Check that the numerical error is acceptable

    • Are the ANSYS results reasonably independent of the mesh?

      • We can refine the mesh by reducing the Size Controls and updating the solution.  We can then compare the results to the original mesh. 

  • Compare with hand calculations for the bending stress and maximum displacement
