Results


To Perform the Test: The rotationloadingHE8.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis, computed with a mesh formed of linear hexahedron elements (HE8). The rotationloadingQD4.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis, computed with a mesh formed of linear quadrangle elements (QD4). To compute the case with linear quadrangle elements (QD4) and linear hexahedron elements (HE8), proceed as follow:
