Im new to this forum and also to ansys software.
Im stuck with a problem to find the deflection in a circular latex(rubber) membrane, fixed at the circumference, when applied with uniform pressure.
I used the element type SOLID45 to model the membrane.
and the pressure 1000N.m-2
Material property i used was Structural->Linear->Elastic->Isotropic-> EX=7e5, PRXY=0.49
but the deflection im getting is too small around 0.3mm! which i think is wrong.
i feel the problem is in the element type i used to model the membrane.
