Results


To Perform the Test: The Bending_of_a_beamTET10.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis of this case, computed with a mesh formed of parabolic tetrahedron elements (TE10). The Bending_of_a_beamHE20.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis of this case, computed with a mesh formed of parabolic hexahedron elements (HE20). To compute the case with linear tetrahedron elements (TE4) and linear hexahedron elements (HE8), proceed as follow:
