# SS-V: 1200 Tangential Edge Stress in an Elliptic Membrane

Test No. VS21 Find the tangential edge stress in an elliptic membrane.

## Definition

Sliding constraints are applied along edges AB, DC, and front face. Uniform Outward pressure of 10 MPa is applied along out edge BC.

The material properties are:

**Properties****Value**- Young's Modulus
- 2.1e5 MPa
- Poisson's Ratio
- 0.3
