Abstract:

This document presents test problems which are intended to demonstrate the ability of SINGER to predict the response of plane frames and rings, including geometrically and physically nonlinear behavior, subject to static and dynamic actions. The following special features are illustrated Inelastic behavior of a cantilever beam, discretization of an elastic ring under uniform pressure, large deformations of an elastic beam, and inelastic cyclic motion of a rod. The quality of the response predictions by SINGER is assessed on the basis of independent exact or approximate solutions.
