A 10 long cantilever is subjected to a lateral tip load of 45 and an axial tip load of 4000.
Shear deformations are ignored. Results are independent of cross section area; therefore any reasonable value can be used. Second order effects from stress stiffening are included, but those caused by update of geometry are not. The beam is modelled with only one finite element, (if more elements had been used the result would converge on a more exact value).
Results were compared with an independent analysis package.
Base Moment Reaction
An exact match is observed between the values reported by the solver and the values reported in “Comparison”.
