StressCheck Tutorial: Converting TLAP-Tractions in a Hole to a Single TLAP-Bearing
Abstract: Converting a TLAP-Traction load record to a statically-equivalent single TLAP-Bearing load record for smooth hole stresses.
- Apply a group of TLAPs to a lug bore with TLAP-Traction
- Check the statics, get the location of the hole center, and then copy this data to a new TLAP case ID
- Apply the new TLAP case ID to the lug bore with TLAP-Bearing

The software provides a highly reliable and user-friendly production stress analysis tool that will replace the Finite Element Method (FEM) tools and failure criteria the experts currently employ for analyzing bonded joints. The software includes an FEM-based handbook format, which allows non-experts to utilize models prepared by specialists. The handbook problems include built-in failure criteria, geometric and material nonlinearities, and the modern FEM technology provides better error control and the treatment of very large aspect ratios.”
