3-2 ABAQUS for CATIA V5, AFC V2.5 Tutorials
This tutorial is an extension of the problem described in chapter 2. The plate with acentral hole is pulled with a high load which drives the part into the plastic range. Thetrue stress/true strain curve is provided in tabular form for the plasticity model.
The steel plate shown below is subjected to a pressure load P at the two ends. Contrary tothe earlier model in chapter 2, the three planes of symmetry are used to reduce the finiteelement model as shown.
