than using fixed supports or rollers on the left boundary. You will first construct the uniaxial rod, and then adapt this structure to represent a simple beam.

Two cases will be considered in FEMAP: 1. Axial load with equal forces on all nodes on the right boundary

2. Bending modeled with equal transverse forces on the right boundary

The length (L1) of the support is 1.5 inches, and the length (L2) of the bar/beam is 6 inches. The height (h1) is 3 inches, and the height (h2) is 1 inch. The thickness is 0.25 inches, and the applied load (P) is 5,000 lbs. The bar is made of AISI 4130 steel which 1

and 49 nodes respectively). This analysis is going to utilize “membrane” elements again. and it will also use the same mesh sizing for the bar/beam (i.001) Options… Merge Coincident Entities (Check) OK At this point the model should look like: After you complete this step. ν = 0. and properties as in previous tutorials. ρ = 7. a message should appear on the gray bar below the main window informing you how many nodes were merged (17 in this case) 2 . materials.33 x 10-4 lb/in3. 80 elements along the length of the beam. perform the following steps: Tools.has material properties of Young’s Modulus. The support mesh size will have 20 elements along the length.e. Remember that each super element has its own set of nodes.Select All OK Check/Merge Coincident… Maximum Distance to Merge (0. E = 29 x 106 psi. the common boundary (line) between the two super elements will have two sets of nodes (one from each super element) that each occupies the same point in space. To perform this function. However these common nodes must be converted to one unique node point so that compatibility is achieved.Coincident Nodes… Entity Selection.Check. 21 nodes. In tutorial 1 compatibility between nodes was mentioned. For additional information refer to tutorial 1. or 81 and 17 nodes along each direction respectively). Poisson’s ratio. and weight density.e. Therefore. and 48 elements along the height (i.32. and 16 elements along the height. Follow the same procedures for geometry.

The axial loading case will have a 5000 lb load distributed evenly on the nodes of the right boundary in the ‘x’ direction.) The constraints will be applied to the support’s left boundary.12 lbs per node. Fix each node in the ‘x’ and ‘y’ directions. leaving the rotational directions free to move (Pinned). (This results in approximately 294. The transverse loading case will have a 5000 lb load distributed evenly along the right boundary in the ‘y’ direction. Model Analysis The first loading case results should look similar to these: VonMises: Sigma XX: 3 .The loads will be applied using the same process as in previous tutorials.

Sigma YY: Sigma XY: 4 .

The second loading case results should look similar to these: VonMises: Sigma XX: 5 .

Sigma YY: Sigma XY: 6 .
