RD-3500 Tensile Test Setup using HyperMesh

This tutorial demonstrates how to simulate a uniaxial tensile test using a quarter size mesh with symmetric boundary conditions.

Only a quarter of the specimen is needed to simulate the tensile test.

Model Description

o

o

o

UNITS: Length (mm), Time (ms), Mass (kg), Force (kN) and Stress (GPa) Simulation time D01 [0 10.] The model uses Quarter size mesh with symmetric boundary conditions.

Boundary Conditions:

The 3 upper right nodes (T X , R Y , and R Z ) The center node on left is totally fixed (T X , T Y , R x , R Y , and R Z ) A symmetry boundary condition on all bottom nodes (T Y , R x , and R Z )

At the left side is applied a constant velocity = 1 mm/ms on -X direction. Tensile test specimen dimensions = 11 x 100 with a uniform thickness = 1.7 mm
