i have perform non-linear static study on this manhole (access cover).

point load - 140000N ( 240 x 240 block) on the top of checker plate on a rate of 5kn/sec.

material = grade 250 (ASTM A36)

contact set - globally bonded (as all the bars are joined by welding)

allowable deflection - 21.74mm

permanent set - 1.96mm

constraints = side bars are fixed from underneath face ( as this cover sits in a pit)


can anyone please run the simulation so i could cross check the results with my analysis.i have attached the AS3996 standard as it contains how the physical testing will be done and that is  am simulating in solidworks.


any help would be much appreicated
