Validation Case: Static Analysis of a W-Beam Under Remote Force

This simulation consists of a steel W-beam with a remote force applied at an offset from one end face and the other end face is fully fixed. The predicted deflection at the free end of the beam from the simulation results is compared against the reference solution given by Roark’s Formulas for Stress and Strain.
