Topics: A demonstrative computer session using ADINA - nonlinear analysis

  • Use of ADINA for elastic-plastic analysis of a plate with a hole
  • Computer laboratory demonstration - Part II
  • Selection of solution parameters and input data preparation
  • Study of the effect of using different kinematic assumptions (small or large strains) in the finite element solution
  • Effect of a shaft in the plate hole, assuming frictionless contact
  • Effect of expanding shaft
  • Study and evaluation of solution results
