Elastoplastic Analysis of Plate with a Center Hole

Model ID: 244


In this model you analyze a perforated plate loaded into the plastic regime. In addition to the original problem, which you can find in section 7.10 of The Finite Element Method by O.C. Zienkiewicz, you can also study the unloading of the plate. The model also shows how to apply an external hardening function based on an interpolated stress-strain curve.
