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).

“Through the use of StressCheck® the A-10 Aircraft Structural Integrity Program’s (ASIP) Analysis Group is able to model more accurately the physics of fatigue crack propagation in critical aircraft structure. Through this tool we are able to model, analyze and predict failure of aircraft structure and then develop crucial inspection and maintenance planes to ensure the safety and sustainability of our nations warplanes. Without the analysis capability provided to us through StressCheck® we would not be able to provide accurate assessments of the A-10 structure to top USAF leadership.”
