Bodnár, F., Beňo, P., Kotšmíd, S., and Luptáková, J. (2016). "Influence of boundary conditions on the solution to a mathematical model for a given wooden plate," BioRes. 11(1), 1061-1070.


The article examines deformation of wood veneer and internal forces resulting from bending. Wood is modelled as an orthotropic material. A thin circular wooden plate hemispherically supported at its free edge is bent by axial hubbing of the punch with a hemispherical end. The analysis of the models is carried out by the ANSYS software. Geometric boundary conditions are calculated and set by a macro formed by the APDL (ANSYS Parametric Design Language) scenario language. For the reason of comparison the models were solved for a given plate with simplified boundary conditions.
