The Girkmann Challenge Problem
Abstract: The model problem described herein was first discussed by Girkmann, subsequently by Timoshenko and Woinowski-Krieger. Solutions by classical methods are presented in both references. Numerical solution of this problem is presented. We propose this problem as a benchmark for evaluating verification procedures that an experienced user of a finite element analysis software product would apply in professional practice to verify that the computed information is sufficiently accurate.
