Results


To Perform the Test: The Twisted_beam_TE10.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis, computed with a mesh formed of parabolic tetrahedron elements (TE10). The Twisted_beam_TR6.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis, computed with a mesh formed of parabolic triangle elements (TR6). The
twistedbeamWE15.CATAnalysis document presents a complete analysis,
computed with a mesh formed of parabolic pentahedron elements (WE15). To compute the case with linear elements, proceed as follow:
