I am modelling a hyperelastic, incompressible 2D valve (essentially just a simple rectangle). I want it to bend, and make sure this happens by applying a pressure to the side of the rectangle.
I am using a shell element with option 13, which equals 2D solid element with plane strain assumption.
When I compare the results for NIP = 1 (1-point Gauss integration) and NIP = 4 (2x2 Gauss integration), I find that the bending in the simulation for NIP=4 is much smaller than for NIP=1. I suspect that this is due to shear locking for the fully integrated elements.
How can I fix this issue?
