BE11: Plastification of a Rectangular Beam

The problem consists of a rectangular cantilever beam, loaded in pure bending as shown in the figure. The model is analysed for different load levels, including the capacity limit load, where the crosssection fully plastifies. The beam is modelled and analysed with different elements and modules.This is one example of our Verification Manual.
