StressCheck Tutorial: Force/Moment Load
Abstract: For flat coplanar surface and element face surface selections, a Force/Moment load method is provided to apply the directional components of force and moment vectors defined on a local (or the global) system as a statically equivalent linear traction distribution.

“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.”
