Twisting and Bending of a Metal Frame
Application ID: 78081
A thin-walled metal frame with a central cutout, modeled using the Shell interface, is subjected to twisting and bending.
Around the cutout the stresses are higher than the yield stress, thus the material undergoes plastic deformation over the loading history.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
