StressCheck Tutorial: Results in Cylindrical Coordinates (R, T, Z)
Abstract: This StressCheck tutorial video shows how to extract results in Cylindrical coordinates (R, T, Z). Using a Cylindrical local system will transform functions with the suffix “X” to “R(adial)” and “Y” to “T(angential/Hoop)”. For example, plotting Sx with a Cylindrical system selected will result in Sr (radial stress).

“We have been having very good success using the P-Version finite element code, StressCheck®, to develop the 2-D solutions for two independent cracks in a plate. I have asked one of our AFGROW team members to model the plate and lug cases using StressCheck® and compare them to the existing AFGROW closed-form solutions. [He] modeled the cases several different ways to be sure that he was getting the best possible solutions. He has verified that the bearing load option in StressCheck® provides excellent results.”
