BEAM3 - 2-D Elastic Beam geometry

Element Description BEAM3 is a uniaxial element with tension, compression, and bending capabilities. The element has three degrees of freedom at each node: translations in the nodal x and y directions and rotation about the nodal zaxis. Assumptions and Restrictions
• •

• • •

The beam element must lie in an X-Y plane and must not have a zero length or area. The beam element can have any cross-sectional shape for which the moment of inertia can be computed. However, the stresses are determined as if the distance from the neutral axis to the extreme fiber is one-half of the height. The element height is used only in the bending and thermal stress calculations. The applied thermal gradient is assumed linear across the height and along the length. The moment of inertia may be zero if large deflections are not used.

BEAM3 Input Data Figure 7.1: "BEAM3 Geometry" shows the geometry, node locations, and the coordinate system for this element. The element is defined by two nodes, the cross-sectional area, the area moment of inertia, the height, and the material properties. The initial strain in the element (ISTRN) is given by ∆/L, where ∆ is the difference between the element length, L (as defined by the I and J node locations), and the zero strain length. The initial strain is also used in calculating the stress stiffness matrix, if any, for the first cumulative iteration.
