ResultsThe results (in mm) correspond to the vertical displacement at Point A.


To Perform the Test: The Cylindrical_Roof_QD8_15nodes.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis of this case, computed with a mesh formed of parabolic quadrangle elements (QD8). To compute the case with linear quadrangle (QD4), linear triangle (TR3) and parabolic triangle (TR6) elements, proceed as follow:
