This project presents the effect of both knot span number and basis polynomial order on the numerical solution of a cantilever metal plate with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions, described with NURBS and subjected to concentrated loads. This parametric investigation includes a set of 9 comparisons with a total number of 20 meshes submitted to linear elastic static NURBS-based isogeometric analysis using Geomiso. The results contain pseudo-displacements (control points), Cartesian coordinates (points, Gauss points) and displacement/ strain/ stress vectors (points, Gauss points). Error estimation is based on the finest mesh which is different for each comparison, while a comparison with the 3D model (140001) was conducted to estimate the error introduced by the plane stress assumptions.
