StressCheck Tutorial: Guiding the MeshSim Automesher with Imprint and Boolean-Union Operations
Abstract: Splitting surfaces of a part in order to better guide the automesher and refine automeshed elements in regions of interest. Imprints of wireframe geometry (curves) and Boolean-union of surfaces are two techniques to split part surfaces for guided automeshing.

“A screening of existent commercial and non-commercial tools was carried out in respect to their fracture mechanics capabilities, their design abilities, implementation as well as their complexity. Although, there are many software possibilities, only those within the reach of the author were evaluated. This resulted in the selection of the commercial tool StressCheck®. The assessment of crack propagation on compact tension and two stringer specimens governed by the Paris and Forman regimes was satisfactory compared with experimental results using the material data from simple standard specimens.”
