StressCheck Tutorial: Boundary Layer Refinement and P-Discretization in Contact Regions
Abstract: Improving multi-body contact iterations by locally increasing solution refinement (boundary layer mesh refinement and p-Discretization) within important contact regions while leaving the remainder of the model with less mesh refinement and at a lower p-level. Manual conversion of elements to geometric mapping in active contact zones is described.

“We used StressCheck® on two projects last year, and we were very happy with it. I thank your engineers who provided their insights and suggestions for us during these projects. We really appreciate your team’s contributions this year to the Navy P-8 project. We look forward to working with ESRD again during next year on other Navy projects.”
