I need help with Hibbeler's Mechanics of Materials exemple 6.12

I try implement this exemple of Hibbeler’s Mechanics of Materials

I would like to know if I have implemented the distributed load and boundary condition properly?

Hey Julio, and thanks for using the forum!

I think you can better setup the model:

  • The right boundary condition: I think that you should allow rotation of the end face, perhaps by using another remote displacement bc.

  • The load: Looks ok to me. You can also apply a pressure load, given that you compute the correct magnitude for it.

Could you help me implement this BC?

Hi again Julio,

To implement this boundary condition, you would do exactly as you did with the other one, but would change to not constrain in the axial direction.
