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).

“We have been having very good success using the P-Version finite element code, StressCheck®, to develop the 2-D solutions for two independent cracks in a plate. I have asked one of our AFGROW team members to model the plate and lug cases using StressCheck® and compare them to the existing AFGROW closed-form solutions. [He] modeled the cases several different ways to be sure that he was getting the best possible solutions. He has verified that the bearing load option in StressCheck® provides excellent results”
