Spherical Cap with Central Point Load

Application ID: 67161


This benchmark studies the nonlinear deformation of a spherical cap subjected to point load at center using 2D axisymmetric Solid Mechanics and Shell interfaces. The results from the Shell interface are compared with Solid Mechanics interface as well as with analytical results given in the benchmark for different discretizations.

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