This tutorial presents the modeling and analysis processes for the reinforcement design of a beam with a circular web opening and explains the procedure for

Verifying results.

The essential contents for the user to experience in the example are the following:

  • Detail modeling using plate elements to study the stress distribution

  • around the vicinity of the opening

  • Method of using Rigid Link for the structural link between the opening detail model and the model of the remaining parts with beam elements

  • Method to extract the analysis results for plate elements
