Helpful Hints and Tips: Converting from Shear to Normal Stress-Strain Diagram
Abstract: The study of stress and failure of adhesive-bonded composite and metal joints usually involves the computation of a material nonlinear problem. Typically, experimental data on adhesive material properties are given in the form of shear stress-strain curves. The relationships in this resource allow the user to convert the material properties fitted in the shear stress-strain condition to their equivalent for a uniaxial stress-strain condition and vice versa.

“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.”
