### Problem 1: Deep Beam

In this problem, we look at the analysis of a deep beam with a concentrated load in the middle. This problem serves as an introduction to for input and output of a PLANE solid linear elastic model into ABAQUS.

### Problem 4: Elasto-Plastic Buckling of a Plate

A plate that is thick and wide is loaded until it buckles around the minor axis. The problem will be considered as a plane problem. The Euler buckling load can be calculated as follows:
