NAFEMS Benchmark: 3D Solid plasticity

Problem Description

Figure 1 shows a 3D cube model undergoing elastic-plastic deformation. Two plasticity models are considered; a perfect plasticity and an isotropic hardening model. The boundary condition is depicted in Figure 1 and the loading condition is summarized in Table 1. 3D continuum elements are utilized to obtain nonlinear responses.
