Hi, I'm using CAX8 (Axisymmetric elastic, full integration)in Abaqus for a personal project of a revolved shaft with multiple notches loaded axially. How is the mesh expanded from 2D, to account for the difference in radius? What is the weak form of this type of element? I looked through my old textbooks and it seems that Axisymmetric elements are just touched on briefly.
