Automated Beta Curve Development Using Parametric FEA
Abstract: Beta factors are often expressed as the superposition of the stress intensity factors (SIFs) of several simple cases. This can be a challenge for complex parts. New approach: Automated beta curve development using parametric finite element analysis (FEA).
