NAFEMS Benchmark: 2D plane strain plasticity

Problem Description

Figure 1 shows a 2D plane strain model undergoing elastic-plastic deformation. Two plasticity models are considered; a perfect plasticity model and an isotropic hardening model. Plane strain elements are incorporated to evaluate the nonlinear response. The loading conditions are summarized in Table 1.
