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.

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.”
