Deployment of Smart Simulation Apps in Support of DaDT Activities
This presentation highlights a DaDT Sim App developed in support of the AFRL-SBIR Phase III project “Deep Residual Stress Method Demo Program”. The Crack Propagation Analysis Tool (CPAT) incorporates the beneficial effects of residual stresses due to cold-expansion in the computation of crack propagation life of components with cold-worked holes.

“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.”
