Elastoplastic Analysis of Holed Plate

Application ID: 244

This example shows the analysis of a perforated plate loaded into the plastic regime. Part of the example is a benchmark, which you can find in section 7.10 of The Finite Element Method by O.C. Zienkiewicz. The unloading of the plate and residual stresses are also studied.

In a second part of the example, it is shown how a hardening function based on a measured stress–strain curve can be used.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
