The 3D geometry is a 45\(^0\) section of a hollow cylinder with dimensions as tabulated below:
Table 1: Geometry dimensions in meters.
Analysis Type and Mesh
Tool Type: Code Aster
Analysis Type: Static linear
Mesh and Element Types: The meshes used in case (A) and (B) were created using the standard mesher on the SimScale platform, while the meshes used in case (C) and (D) were created in an external platform and then imported to the SimScale workbench.

Steel (linear elastic)
\(E\) = 200 \(GPa\), \(v\) = 0.3
Face EFE’F’ zero normal-displacement
Face ABA’B’ zero y-displacement
Face ABEF and face A’B’E’F’ zero z-displacements fixed
The pressure of 60 \(MPa\) on Face AEA’E’
The analytical solution is given by the equations presented under Reference Solution\(^1\).
The results obtained from SimScale for displacements, stresses, and strains at point A are compared with those presented in [SSLV04].
