StressCheck Tutorial: Crack Front Automeshing/Auto Integration Radius Features
Abstract: with the release of StressCheck v11, the Crack Front automeshing method (combining the features of the Crack Face and Boundary Layer automesh methods) and the Radius: AUTO option (automatically computes the integration radius for SIF and J-integral extractions from the Points tab) are now available to streamline the analysis of 3D cracks.

“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.”
