BE41: Linear Pinched Cylinder

The problem consists of a thin cylinder shell with rigid end diaphragms, which is loaded in its middle by two oppositely directed radially point loads, as shown in the figure. The maximum deflection at the center of the cylinder, under the point loads, is determined and verified for refined meshes.This is one example of our Verification Manual.
