Modeled vertical displacement and stress fields. Vertical displacement and principal stress fields estimated for a uniformly loaded elliptical plate model with a clamped edge. a Vertical displacement field caused by overpressure of 14.26 kPa (displacement in meters). The modeled plate is 1 m thick with Young’s modulus of 1 GPa and Poisson’s ratio of 0.25. b Principal stress field caused by overpressure of 14.26 kPa. Blue and red ticks are the maximum principal stress and minimum principal stress axes, respectively. Stresses are in megapascal
