Displacement control VS. force control in Abaqus
I have modeled a simply supported beam, using wire and the circle section of 1mm and a length of 110mm. I did two analyses
1) I used the distributed load of 0.2 N/mm (where the beam behaves in
the elastic area) and got the maximum displacement (at center).
2) I used the obtained max displacement (from first analysis) as a
displacement control. the results of the reaction forces are supposed to
like the distributed load at first analysis, but it is much lower.
it must be mentioned that, I have used half model for the analysis purposes.
Your help is highly appreciated.
