StressCheck Tutorial: Modeling and SIF Extraction for a 3D Loaded Crack Face
Abstract: Defining and assigning a formulaic, normal residual stress distribution to a part-thru crack surface, then using the Contour Integral Method – Loaded Crack (CIM-LC) to extract stress intensity factors (SIF) for a 3D plate + hole with loaded corner crack.

“Of the three FEA products we use, StressCheck® gives me the most confidence when it comes to performing post-processing quality checks on multi-body contact analysis results. StressCheck® has the capability to extract any data of interest and convergence information for that data at any location in the model domain; the other two FEA products do not. And when it comes to interference fit multi-body contact solutions, I haven’t found any software to outperform StressCheck®.”
