SLS 01: Cantilever rectangular plate


Material Modulus of elasticity E = 210 000 N/mm^2
Poisson’s ratio \nu= 0.3
Geometry Cross-section Thickness e=5 mm
Boundary conditions Along line AB Fixed
Loads On the entire surface p=1.7kNm/m^2
Mesh Maximum element size 0.02m
Minimum element size 0.00m



    \[\delta_y=\frac{b \cdot l^{4} \cdot p}{8 \cdot E \cdot I_z}=\frac{0.1m \cdot (1m)^4  \cdot 1.7kN/m^2}{8 \cdot E \cdot \frac{0.1m \cdot (0.005m)^3}{12}} = 97.143mm\]
