Stress and deflection analysis in i-beam, Mechanical Engineering

You are required to formulate the loading and boundary conditions using the FE code and evaluate the stress distribution and end deflection of the beam using the ABAQUS code and visualization tool.

You should also calculate the maximum stress and end deflection of this beam using the conventional beam bending theory and compare your results with those evaluated  using the FE code. Clearly indicate all assumptions and boundary conditions used in the analysis.

Discuss any discrepancies in the results. Any references used should be clearly identified in the report. You must pay attention to the type and also the direction of stress or deflection you use from FEA when comparing the results from conventional beam bending theory.

Reading values of maximum stress may refer to the magnitude of stress in stress-concentration areas and not necessarily the stress in the rest of the beam e.g. which you may be comparing with conventional theory.
