    Simulation of rectangular plate

      Hello all,

      i just made stress analysis of a rectangular plate of 100x100x5 mm. With its bottom fixed and a force of say 10000N on top face. Actually stress=F/A which should be 10000/10000=1N/mm^2. But i am getting 1.8N/mm^2. What exactly is problem but i am sure simulation cant go wrong in a simple problem like this. Is my approach of the problem correct, kindly correct me if i am wrong. Thanks
