Abstract:


In this paper, a well-known numerical benchmark test which is usually solved with
displacement control for low values of the load eccentricity is examined for a
complete range of eccentricities of the ring load. For a certain range of the
eccentricity the response shows either snap-through or snap-back depending on
the controlled variable. Thus, in this range of eccentricities, the test can be
used to verify implementations of arc-length algorithms using the displacement
controlled solution as a reference. Moreover, results are presented for large
eccentricities beyond the applicability of displacement-controlled strategies.
