Verification & 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?

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