StressCheck Demo: 2D Fastened Joint Analysis
Abstract: A 2D Fastened Joint Analysis Demo video is presented for a splice joint. StressCheck fastener and link elements are used to fill holes and connect the splice plates for the Planar model, linear and general nonlinear analysis are performed, and the load transfer to each fastener element is extracted from the general nonlinear solution.

“Aerospace materials scientists and structural engineers now have a new state-of-the-art software product called StressCheck®, which provides efficient and reliable analysis tools for composite bonded aircraft structures. A composites research team from the aeronautics industry, known as the Composites Affordability Initiative (CAI), has just completed an extensive study of current capabilities in the area of failure analysis tools for composite bonded joints. This study led the CAI team to unanimously choose StressCheck® as the software tool to replace as well as radically improve existing industry standard software currently used to size bonded joints.”
