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 application was built using the following:Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
