Linear Elasticity Solver - Edge Loads

Hello,

I am looking to replicate the cantilever beam model in Elmer. The loads are edge loads (picture attached). There was no option for edge (or line) loads in Linear Elasticity Solver. How should I proceed?

Thanks for any information you can provide.

Thermo-elastic beam

Hello, I am looking to simulate the benchmark problem - thermo-elastic beam. The beam is subjected to an end load (thermal and mechanical). The goal is to determine the temperature distribution, stresses and strains in the beam. In my model, under Equations I selected Heat Equation and Linear Elasti...

Tutorial 12/Elmer GUI Manual

Hello,

Is there a numerical model for the problem described in Tutorial 12 of the Elmer GUI manual - Interaction between fluid flow and elastic obstacle? I am looking to use the numerical model as a benchmark.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

Re: Cantilever Beam - Theory vs Elmer results

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your response. In regards to the mass discrepancy, for the same dimensions (L,w,t) and density, shouldn't the Elmer mass be the same as Numerical model mass?

Re: Cantilever Beam - Theory vs Elmer results

Hello, I am looking to reduce the discrepancies between cantilever beam numerical model and Elmer model results. I am using Elmer linear elasticity solver to determine mass, stress and displacement. The displacement values compare well. But there are discrepancies in the mass and stress values. Mass...

Re: Cantilever Beam - Theory vs Elmer results

Hi Peter, There was a minor mistake that I had made in save scalars - used "stress zz" instead of "stress_zz". This resolved the issue. Thank you! In regards to displacement, would there be a change in density that would compensate the change in displacement volume, keeping the mass constant? Since ...
