Calculate the mid span deflection of an 8x8 simply supported slab of 0.1 thickness under self-weight only. Take material properties E=2x1011, G=7.7x1010 and ρ=7849.
A regular triangular finite element mesh is used with sufficient subdivision. Flexural and shear deformation is included, and the material is assumed to be isotropic.
The mid-span deformation is calculated using Navier's Method.
An acceptable match is observed between the theoretical values and the solver results. An acceptable match is also observed between the solver results and those obtained independently.
