Systems Analysis and Modeling in Defense: Development, Trends, and Issues

This ebook comprises the complaints of an interna­ tional symposium dedicated to Modeling and research of protection techniques within the context of land/air conflict. It was once subsidized through Panel VII (on safeguard purposes of Operational study) of NATO's security study team (DRG) and came about 27-29 July 1982 at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

View the Results In the results menu, use the command Create/Quick Plot. Make plots of the displacements ad the appropriate stresses. 64 VI. EXERCISES 1. Turn in the plots for the displacements and stresses. Do they make physical sense? 2. Find a way to get some substantial analytic verification for the model. 3. e. determine where material can probably be removed). Computationally test your new design.

Op2 then appears in the File Name box 57 Click OK (back in the Analysis menu) Click Apply Select the TM Results A RM will appear called Results Set Action = Create Object = Quick Plot In the Select Fringe Result box click Displacements, translational In the Apply Displacement Result box click Displacements, translational Set Quantity = magnitude Click Apply (This will create the deformed plot) Note that stresses can also be plotted from the Results menu by specifying them in the Select Fringe Result section.

This should NOT affect the results of your analysis substantially except in one case. The distribution of elements in the Y direction must be constant across the part. For example if you have 6 elements across the far left edge, then you need to have 6 elements across the right curved edge and across other X=constant planes in the part. The reason this is important is that if the element pattern is not symmetric in the in the Y direction, the part will experience a nonsymmetric distribution of loads in the Y direction, resulting in non-physical displacements in the Y direction and also resulting in non-physical bending stresses.
