Verification Manual Examples#

This section demonstrates a range of Mechanical APDL elements and capabilities in straightforward problems which have “classical” or readily-obtainable theoretical solutions using PyMAPDL.

These problems may then serve as the basis for additional validation and qualification of Mechanical APDL capabilities for specific applications that may be of interest.
