      Simple Cantilever Beam Deflection. ANSYS deformation doesn't come close to calculated measurement. What am I doing wrong?

      Please describe the model you built, was it solid, shell or beam elements?

      Plese describe the equation you used to calculate the deformation, was it Euler beam theory or Timoshenko beam theory?

      You will get excellent agreement if you use beam elements and Timoshenko beam theory equations.
