Voluminal Paving Stone Subjected to Harmonic Pressure

Overview

The aim of this test case is to validate the following functions:

  • Harmonic analysis
  • Harmonic pressure

The simulation results of SimScale were compared to the numerical results in [SDLV124]. The mesh used in case (A) was obtained from Code_Aster.
