Linear Elasticity: Plane StressWheel with uniform tangential load on outer boundary, fixed at the hub, inner holes unloaded. The numerical solution is computed via the displacement model. Moreover, it is assumed that the zcomponents of the forces vanish (plane stress model). WEBsplines of degree 3 on a grid of 156x156 cells have been used. The fixation was modeled by w(x,y)=x^{2}+y^{2}r^{2}, where r denotes the hub radius. The following figures visualize the magnified displacement (left) and the maximum principal stress (right).
