This benchmark is extract from the Abaqus Benchmarks Manual.
We focus on the LE10 benchmarks in particular.
The geometry is given here by :
where the thickness is \(0.6\).
In addition, we define the point E which is the midpoint of CC' and E' the midpoint of BB'.
We set:
\(u_y = 0\) on DCD’C'
\(u_x = 0\) on ABA’B'
\(u_x = u_y = 0\) on BCB’C'
\(\bar{\bar{\varepsilon}}\cdot\mathbf{n}=-1e^6\) on the top surface.
We have the following parameters:
Name | Value |
---|---|
\(E\) |
\(210\, GPa\) |
\(\nu\) |
\(0.3\) |
\(\rho\) |
\(7800\, kg/m^2\) |
We want to compare the value of \(\sigma_{yy}\) at the point D. The reference value is \(5.38\, MPa\).
The value of \(\sigma_{yy}\) at the point D is \(5.53\, MPa\) for \(300 000\) dofs, which is \(2.78%\) higher than the target.
One possibility to get a more accurate output is to use a mixed formulation, where the stress tensor would also be an unknown.
