ASIP 2018 Training – Modeling Fastened Connections: Hierarchic Approaches Discussion and Demo
Abstract: This 2-hour training course will discuss a hierarchic approach to modeling fastened joints using Finite element Analysis (FEA) with specific examples and case studies using professional FEA software. Model conceptualization, including all simplifying assumptions based on both the available information and the data of interest will be covered as well.
Originally presented as a training course at the 2018 ASIP conference in Phoenix, AZ.

“Accurate and reliable stresses and Stress Intensity Factors are required for determination of static and residual strength and for crack growth analyses in analysis tools such as AFGROW. For some geometries, industry solutions are either insufficient or nonexistent. The geometry, applied forces, and crack shapes and dimensions must be modeled reasonably well to obtain useful engineering data. The p-version finite element software StressCheck® (ESRD, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri, USA) is used to demonstrate how accurate finite element solutions can lead to good quality engineering analysis.”
