Plane stress to a single element- help!

  1. Sep 14, 2013 #1
    Dear All,
    I just have a single element, I need to apply a plane stress condition as in the attached image.

    For the boundary conditions;
    • I have constrained the nodes 1 and 2 in the horizontal (x) direction
    • I have constrained the nodes 1 and 3 in the vertical (Y) direction
    • I have constrained nodes 1,2,3 in z (perpendicular) direction.
    • I have got a constant stress and strain throughout the element

    Are the results i.e. stress distribution correct qualitatively? Have I applied the boundary conditions correctly?

    Please can anyone advise?
