Now the only thing I can do is following a small screen with the step materials, constraints, loads, analysis and view result.
Mine licence does not allow to us the upper toolbar.
I am using the Academic Edition so I am able to see the beam.
Check the video for the solution of your problem.
Read while the video is loading...
Some comments/tips about the video and your problem:
You are using the Lite Version. Try to apply this tips to your model (eliminate the load on the edges, create little regions or extrudes instead, avoid constraint points..)
Nice Friday to everybody. Sorry for the Spam, was a huge problem upload the video.
I can't reproduce the 11.4mm now, but that site has some numbers already filled in by default, so that may have caused it.
For a simply supported beam I find 80.8mm. That is also what i find in Creo (81.0mm) and Abaqus (80.9mm) using beam sections on curves.
The difference must be in the constraints on the end points. My beams are "simply supported".
For a beam fully fixed at both ends, the hand calcs say 19.7mm, and Creo says 19.9 mm.
What constraints are you using to obtain 22mm Steven?
I can't attach files here, so I opened a new Discussion here
There you can find my model, so maybe you can compare to yours?
Translating the geometry to the Academic Version and avoiding singularities
Gives the same result. 22 mm. According to the original constraints of the Lite Version, is fixed in all DOF and with free rotation in all direction (SOLID ELEMENTS, which does not support rotation, but well.. just info). Notice the values of Material Properties (KPA!)
Using Beam Idealization it gives 16.6 mm, but I am not sure if I constrained this correctly.
