Simulation of Cook's membrane using enhanced elements

Here, we demonstrate the performance of the enhanced assumed strain element Q1E4 using beam clamped on one end and subjected to a load on the free end. This problem is commonly referred as Cook's membrane. The material is taken as a nearly incompressible.

Firstly, we consider linear elasticity with $E = 250$ and $\nu = 0.4999$

Geometry and loading of Cook's membrane

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Results are coming soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Secondly, we use large strain model

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Under construction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can download the mesh generator for Cook's membrane written in Matlab here:
