Large Deformation Analysis of a Beam

Application ID: 204

This example studies the deflection of a cantilever beam undergoing very large deflections. In addition, a linearized buckling analysis of the structure is also performed.

The model comes from Section 5.2 of NAFEMS Background to Finite Element Analysis of Geometric Non-linearity Benchmarks.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
