Cantilever beam with force

Learning objectives

Upon completion of this case study, you will be able to:

  • Navigate in AquaEdit
  • Specify properties of beam component
  • Verify model
  • Know basic properties of analysis parameters
  • Establish an analysis folder and run analysis
  • Open, and navigate, in AquaView
  • Assess the influence of model discretization


In this case study you will determine the shear force of a cantilever beam with rectangular cross section. The beam is exposed to a horizontal point load, giving rise to shear forces.
