Interpret Analysis Results
This tutorial presents the modeling and analysis processes for the reinforcement design of a beam with a circular web opening and explains the procedure for verifying results. The essential contents for the user to experience in the example are the following:
- Detail modeling using plate elements to study the stress distribution around the vicinity of the opening.
- Method of using Rigid Link for the structural link between the opening detail model and the model of the remaining parts with beam elements.
- Method to extract the analysis results for plate elements.
