T.3 Description of the tutorial problem
The structure for this project is a slab fixed along two edges. You will model it using 6 quadrilateral (i.e., 4-noded) plate elements. The structure and the mathematical model are shown in the figures below. It is subjected to selfweight, pressure loads and temperature loads. The purpose of this tutorial to create the model, assign all required input, perform the analysis, and review the results.
