ST7-126.96.36.199 Modelling a Snap-Through Buckle
Buckling and post-buckling prediction is one useful applications of finite element analysis. A nonlinear buckling analysis can give a good indication of the structural response near the onset of buckling, and post-buckling if the solution can be made sufficiently stable. Snap-through buckling is one situation that exhibits stable post-buckling behaviour. This Webnote examines the prediction of snap-through buckling using Strand7.
