OptiStruct Explicit: Tensile Test

Tensile tests are used to evaluate the mechanical properties of a material such as the modulus of elasticity, yield stress, and ultimate tensile strength. 


The goal of this article is to showcase and compare the different element formulations and types in OptiStruct explicit with Radioss and experimental data. The following studies were performed:
