**Calculation of deflection by strain energy method using Abaqus software and Analytical Solution**

**In this example, we intend to calculate the Deflection using the Abaqus software and Analytical Solution**

**In this problem, first, the deflection of point C is calculated using the Analytical Solution, then, the deflection of point C is calculated using the Abaqus software, and following that, the results obtained from the Abaqus software are compared with those of Analytical Solution**

**In this picture, you can observe geometric shape of the Model which includes two AB and BC rods having been connected together**

**The length of AB and BC rods are equal to 200 mm and a force equal to 150 N is applied downwards to point C and the purpose is to calculate the vertical deflection of point C**

**Deflection obtained from the Analytical Solution is equal to 11.57 mm**

**Deflection obtained from the Abaqus software is equal to 11.6 mm**

**As you observe, the results obtained from the Abaqus software are precisely concordant with those of the Analytical Solution**
