Conference Presentation: AFGROW Plug-In Development
Abstract: AFGROW is a Damage Tolerance Analysis (DTA) framework that allows users to analyze crack initiation, fatigue crack growth, and fracture to predict the life of metallic structures. AFGROW Plug-In interface was a joint effort between AFRL, APES, Boeing, and LexTech, Inc. to automate crack growth via AFGROW and StressCheck.

“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.”
