Example 24: Deflection of a thin cantilever beam


Description of the problem

To verify the mathematical model of ELPLA for computing plane stresses, results of a cantilever beam having a thin rectangular cross section introduced by Timoshenko/ Goodier (1970) (Example 21, page 41) are compared with those obtained by ELPLA. The cantilever carries a point load of P = 150 [kN] applied at the end as shown in Figure 58.
