StressCheck Tutorial: Mapping Cold Working Residual Stresses to a Reamed Part via BRS Method
Abstract: Mapping residual stresses generated by cold working to a reamed part via Bulk Residual Stress (BRS) mapping and loading methods. Using Solution Configurations + Parts and the StressCheck BRS Module to:
- Solve a Cold Working (CX) analysis via Incremental theory of plasticity and Nonlinear Events
- Map the post-CX residual stress distribution to the reamed part using BRS mapping
- Apply the BRS-mapped stress distribution to the reamed part as a new load case
- Solve for stress redistribution in the reamed part.

“Small errors in modeling can lead to substantial errors in joint performance prediction. To alleviate this problem, the CAI used the handbook functionality of ESRD Inc.’s (St. Louis, Mo.) trademarked StressCheck® P-version finite element software to develop reusable models of typical joints.”
