Beam 3-point bending (overview)
This example considers a beam in three points bending. It will be studied using several third-party software and various toolboxes from COSSAN-X.
The presentation of the mechanical model and its implementation in the different toolboxes are in the pages linked below.
Then simulation analysis is performed to investigate the effects of the uncertainties on the mid-span displacement.
Finally the tutorial shows how to perform reliability analysis using this example.
Both the uncertainty quantification and the reliability analysis can be executed on the grid using High Performace Computing
