Heng,


Where are your hand calculations? Where did you come up with a pressure load of 110897 Pa?  That sounds like air pressure. You don't apply that to a cantilever beam.  A more realistic pressure is 50 Pa.



I created a surface with the length and width of the beam and assigned the thickness.


Hand Calculation      = 0.485 m
ANSYS Deformation = 0.482 m (-0.6% error)




Hand Calculation = 10.3 MPa
ANSYS Stress     = 10.4 MPa  (1.5% error)
