Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica:
i am doing my dissertation on buckling of channel section. so i have used abaqus software to do the analysis. i did the modelling and applided unit load n given pinned-pinned end condition. and i have used constraints to both ends such that the load applied on the edge is concentrated at a point .
but the results i.e mode shapes are not coming properly even the eigen values are very less compaired to calculated buckling load.
plz help me out.
dimensions of specimen channel section
width of web 100mm
width of flange 50mm
