Application ID: 8520
In this model, you build and solve a simple 3D beam model using the 3D Beam interface. This model calculates the deformation, section forces, and stresses in a cantilever beam, and compares the results with analytical solutions. The first few natural frequencies are also computed.
The purpose of the example is twofold: It is a verification of the functionality of the beam element in COMSOL Multiphysics, and it explains in detail how to give input data and interpret results for a nontrivial cross section.
This application was built using the following:Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
