The bracket in blue is welded to a support. A force of 10 kN is applied through bearing force on the lower half of the circle (distributed load on the

lower half of the circle with a resultant of 10kN). The thickness of the bracket is 50 mm. ANSYS Workbench requirements: 1. Solve the problem :as a 3-dimensional problem using 3D solid element. 2. Solve the problem as a 2-dimensional problem using plane stress element. 3. Compare the results. 4. Verify the model and results. 1. There is no need to draw the support when solving the problem). 2. You may ignore the fillet during the 2D modelling of the problem. 3. Submit a report along with discussions (together with photos of your work). 4. Create a cover page on your own.
