Thin-walled T-section Tapered Cantilever Beam

The Problem

A thin-walled T-section cantilevered beam is fixed at one end and is subjected to a vertically downward point load of 368N at the free end.

The section is of uniform thickness of 2mm.

The Young's modulus value is 200kN/mm2and Poisson’s ratio is 0.25

N.B. the dimensions represent only the free end and gets bigger towards the fixed end. The web in middle of the beam 500mm from the free end is 150mm instead of 100mm

Finite Element Model

1 Work in units of N (force) and mm (length) and MPa (=N/mm2modulus/stress).

2 Use Plate/Shell QUAD8 element.

3 Take the global axes origin to be at the bottom left corner the fixed end- (X,Y, Z).

4 Generate the nodes and element manually for three elements model. UseTools Subdivide for generation of more elements.

Use QUAD8 elements as required

Finite Element Output

1 Vertical deflection (DY) along the line AB.

2 Bending stress (SZZ), in Global axes, along the line AB.

3 Bending stress (SZZ), in Global axes, along the line PQ.

4 Vertical shear stress (SYZ), in Global axes, along the line PQ.

Theory

1 Use the double integration method to find the vertical deflection along the top surface (line AB).

2 Use the bending theory to find the bending stress along the top surface (line AB).

3 Use the bending theory to find the bending stress along the web (line PQ).

4 Use the bending theory to find the vertical shear stress distribution along the web (line PQ).
