The aim of this test case is to validate the following functions:
The simulation results of SimScale were compared to the numerical results presented in [Roark]. The meshes used in (A) and (B) were created with the parametrized-tetrahedralization-tool on the SimScale platform. The meshes used in (C) and (D) were locally created with Salome.
The shaft has a radius
= 0.1 m and a length
= 0.5 m, but only one quarter is being modelled.
