I am currently calculating the maximum bending stress of a gland; for the moment, however, I am just looking at the object as a circular disc (with a hollowed out center).
I have my gland stress as being equal to:
Gland = ( 6 x M ) /t²
Where: t = GLAND THICKNESSM = UNIT RADIAL BENDING MOMENT (Nmm per mm of circumference). I don't really understand what it means by the unit radial bending moment. I am comparing my results with an FEA simulation but I do not know how to load my model in relation toward this "M" value. Could anyone shed some light on this please?
