Fatigue Life Prediction of Flaw-Tolerant Damaged Rotorcraft Structures
Abstract: Paper presented at the American Helicopter Society Annual Forum 74 in Phoenix, Arizona May 14-17, 2018: Fatigue Life Prediction of Flaw-Tolerant Damages Rotorcraft Structures. The presentation and paper report the work done by ESRD and NAVAIR under a SBIR program to develop an analytical approach to predicting the remaining useful fatigue life of metallic components with surface flaws.

“Of the three FEA products we use, StressCheck® gives me the most confidence when it comes to performing post-processing quality checks on multi-body contact analysis results. StressCheck® has the capability to extract any data of interest and convergence information for that data at any location in the model domain; the other two FEA products do not. And when it comes to interference fit multi-body contact solutions, I haven’t found any software to outperform StressCheck®.”
