I have a question about how to plot the stresses correctly.
I have used a 10*2*2 beam which is fixed at one end. Applied a force of 100 pounds at the other end. Theoretically when we calculate , stress on the beam should be F/A which will come to 25psi. But in the ansys result, most of the areas are at 25psi, but towards the fixed end, stresses go high as 60psi. How do I explain this to some one, who dont have much idea about FEA, or is there a way in ANSYS post processing to show stresses are equal everywhere.
I am new to this , so suggestions would be helpful.
