Description of the tutorial problem

The structure for this project is a slab fixed along two edges. We will model it using 6 quadrilateral (4-noded) plate elements. The structure and the mathematical model are shown in the figures below. It is subjected to selfweight, pressure loads and temp erature loads. Our goal is to create the model, assign all required input, perform the analysis, and go through the results.
