Channel Beam

Application ID: 8520

In this model, you build and solve a simple 3D beam model using the 3D Beam interface. This model calculates the deformation, section forces, and stresses in a cantilever beam, and compares the results with analytical solutions. The first few natural frequencies are also computed.

The purpose of the example is twofold: It is a verification of the functionality of the beam element in COMSOL Multiphysics, and it explains in detail how to give input data and interpret results for a nontrivial cross section.

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