Library case Y621: Thermal stresses in irregularly-shaped solids.

STRESBOX : a collection of examples of PLANT features for stress-in-solid option.

This 3D domain comprises four variants ( one for each Z-slab) of the problem of thermal expansion of solid block placed in the cold stream:

IZ=1 contains simple rectangular block;
IZ=2 as above but with automatic implementation of boundary conditions;
IZ=3 staircase cutted piece of the above and
IZ=4 has got the external pressure loaded block.

Three first three problems have got the mathematical statements and analitical solution for solid displacements shown below.

  1. What user puts into Q1.

  2. What PLANT puts into GROUND.

  3. Results.
