Uniform Compression of a Block - Bulk Modulus
Posted Mar 7, 2013, 10:25 AM EST Structural Mechanics & Thermal Stresses Version 4.3a 1 Reply
I am trying to validate a bulk modulus calculation on a simple cube of a linear solid. I apply a uniform force per area on all six sides of the cube (all in compression). But I cannot get the model to solve, it keeps failing because the relative error is greater than the relative tolerance. Any ideas?
I'm sure this is some simple thing I am overlooking.
