**Calculation of the Strain energy due to bending for the steel beam using the Abaqus software and Analytical Solution**

**In this example, we intend to calculate the strain energy due to bending for the Steel beam using the Abaqus software and Analytical Solution**

**As you observe in the picture, A 20-kilo pound force is applied to the both ends of the beam. The length of beam is 90 inches and there are two supports at the points B and C**

**Strain energy obtained from the Analytical Solution is equal to 321.84 **

**Strain energy obtained from the Abaqus software is equal to 323.242**

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