Are machining-induced residual stresses causing unacceptable distortion? Need to simulate the influence of cold working sequence for a given hole pattern? Residual stresses (RS) can have a significant impact on the strength, durability and damage tolerance of metallic and composite parts. In the past, reliably simulating RS effects was challenging due to extreme stress gradients, especially in lightweight components.
Residual Stress Applications
With the technology in StressCheck®, representing rapidly changing stresses over short distances is a breeze.
RS effects can be beneficial, such as life extension by cold working one or more fastener holes, or detrimental, such as distortion leading to expensive re-working or rejection of large, lightweight manufactured parts. Are you in good shape?

Having a simulation capability is no longer a differentiator. To remain competitive companies need to have a capability and be able to use the capability effectively to produce results that are reliable and repeatable. Generating confidence in the capability of the simulation team is essential to move analysis from being a ‘tick box’ in the design process to a strategic capability
