StressCheck Tutorial: 3D Manual Mesh for Racetrack Cutout
Abstract: Manual meshing of a 3D parametric solid panel with a racetrack cutout. Associative node creation methods (e.g. Mid-Offset, Projection) are used to ensure the manually-meshed elements inherit characteristics from the geometry.

“Accurate and reliable stresses and Stress Intensity Factors are required for determination of static and residual strength and for crack growth analyses in analysis tools such as AFGROW. For some geometries, industry solutions are either insufficient or nonexistent. The geometry, applied forces, and crack shapes and dimensions must be modeled reasonably well to obtain useful engineering data. The p-version finite element software StressCheck® (ESRD, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri, USA) is used to demonstrate how accurate finite element solutions can lead to good quality engineering analysis.”
