Verification Examples

Thin Rectangular Orthotropic Plate Under Uniform Load

Thin rectangular orthotropic plate is simply supported and loaded by the uniformly distributed pressure. The directions of axis x and y coincide with the principal directions. While neglecting self-weight, determine the maximum deflection of the plate.

Curved Beam with Distributed Loading

A curved beam consists of two beams with a rectangular cross-section. The horizontal beam is loaded by a distributed loading. While neglecting self-weight, determine the maximal stress on the top surface of the horizontal beam.

Curved Beam Without Plane Loading

A quarter-circle beam with a rectangular cross-section is loaded by means of an out-of-plane force. This force causes a bending moment, torsional moment and a transverse force. While neglecting self-weight, determine the total deflection of the curved beam.

Eccentricity Test

Pinned beam with rectangular cross‑section is subjected to distributed loading and shifted vertically by eccentricity. Considering small deformation theory, neglecting self‑weight, and assuming that the beam is made of isotropic elastic material, determine the maximum deflection.

Center of Gravity

VE 0081 16 October 2017 RFEM Member Plate Solid

Determine the y-position of the center of gravity for the given bodies, namely semicircle, half-disc, hemispherical shell and half-ball.

Bimetallic Strip

A bimetallic strip is composed of the invar and copper. The left end of the bimetallic strip is fxed, and the right end is free, loaded by temperature difference. While neglecting self-weight, determine the deflection of the bimetallic strip (free end).

Truss Structure with Thermal Loading

A truss structure consists of three rods - one steel and two copper joined by a rigid member. The structure is loaded by a concentrated force and by a temperature difference. While neglecting self‑weight, determine the total deflection of the structure.
