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?
