For detailed study please go to Elastoplastic Notched Plate documentation.
The purpose of this simulation is to validate the implemented plastic material behavior on SimScale. Therefore two different meshes with two different element formulations were investigated. The locally created structured mesh is shown in the picture below.
One face of the plate is displaced by 0.0001 m in the y-direction. Because of this deformation the yield strength of the material is being exceeded locally. For the validation of the material behavior the Cauchy stresses along a predefined path are compared to the reference.
