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 found StressCheck® very useful for computational fracture mechanics for both metallic and composite components. In recent years it has been extensively used in determining beta factors for RAAF’s C-130 Wing DTA locations and associated generic research.”
