Problem Specification

Consider the semi-monocoque shell problem analyzed in a previous tutorial. Redo the problem changing only the number of stiffeners in the x-direction. For the quarter-plate, increase the number of x-stiffeners to 3 as shown below; previously, we had 2. Compare the displacement and stress values for the new and old cases and comment on the differences and/or similarities.

We'll play smart and avoid plodding through the solution procedure from scratch by using ANSYS capabilities for performing parametric studies.
