Verification Examples

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).

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.

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.

Determination of the maximum deflection and the maximum radial moment of a simply supported circle plate subjected to the uniform pressure, the uniform temperature and the differential temperature.

A three-dimensional block, made of elastic-plastic material, is fixed on the both ends. The block's middle plane is subjected to the pressure load. The surface of plasticity is described according to the Tsai-Wu plasticity theory.
