Validation Case: Cantilever Beam With Off-Center Masses – NAFEMS Test FV4
This validation case belongs to solid mechanics, with the case of a circular cantilever beam with two off-center point masses connected at the free end. The test case aims to validate the following parameters:
Point Mass boundary condition
The simulation results of SimScale were compared to the reference results presented in [NAFEMS]\(^1\)
1000 \(kg\) connected to face B at a distance of 2 \(m\)
10000 \(kg\) connected to face B at a disance of 2 \(m\)
The reference solution presented in [NAFEMS]\(^1\) is of the numerical type. It is presented as the first six natural oscillation frequencies of the cantilever beam with the connected remote point mass. The values are presented in Table 2 alongside the comparison with SimScale results.
Comparison of the first six natural frequencies for the run cases with the reference solution:
