Fink Truss: Overview
The purpose of this test case is to validate some of the unit conversion for metric units. In this example, the following units were changed:
- Moment (kN-m to N-m)
- Force (kN to kg)
- Pressure (MPa to kPa)
For information purposes, g = 9.80665 is used.
The results are compared internally due to the concern of the verification only limited in the unit conversion of results and not necessarily the analysis.
The structure is a 30-node, 48-member frame structure supported by fixed supports. The building consists of general section beams made from steel.
Evaluation points: 10
