Gap-Filling Thermal Expansion
A steel rod between two rigid supports with a gap is loaded by a temperature difference. While neglecting self‑weight, determine the total deformation of the rod and its internal axial force.
Structural engineering software for finite element analysis (FEA) of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, members (beams), solids and contact elements
The structural engineering software for design of frame, beam and truss structures, performing linear and nonlinear calculations of internal forces, deformations, and support reactions
