3D Crack Growth Simulation: Advancements & Applications Webinar Slides
In this webinar we will detail the latest technological advancements for accurate simulation of three-dimensional metallic crack growth via coupled finite element analysis (FEA) and fatigue life computations. Additionally, we will examine why the development of more complex crack growth models requires both tighter control over numerical errors (i.e. solution verification) and rigorous benchmarking to standard handbook solutions and available experimental data (i.e. model validation).

“In the case of the through crack configuration, the comparison of experimental and StressCheck® derived geometry factors showed a close correlation and were an improvement to solutions provided in AFGROW at the time. Based on the results of this research, StressCheck® pin-loaded lug geometry factors have since been incorporated into the AFGROW software.”
