Scordelis-Lo Roof Shell Benchmark
Application ID: 489
In this example a thin curved membrane is built and solved using the Shell interface. This model is a widely used benchmark model denoted the Scordelis-Lo roof.
The computed maximum z-deformation is compared with the value given in Proposed Standard Set of Problems to Test Finite Element Accuracy, Finite Elements in Analysis and Design, 1985.
This application was built using the following:Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
