StressCheck Tutorial: Multi-Body Contact Solver Options/Plot Functions
Abstract: with the release of StressCheck v11, solver settings for models with active contact zones (Iteration Limit, Pressure Tolerance, Ray Tolerance) and functions for plotting contact pressure, initial gap and final gap are now available to provide more control and feedback for multi-body contact analyses.

“We have been having very good success using the P-Version finite element code, StressCheck®, to develop the 2-D solutions for two independent cracks in a plate. I have asked one of our AFGROW team members to model the plate and lug cases using StressCheck® and compare them to the existing AFGROW closed-form solutions. [He] modeled the cases several different ways to be sure that he was getting the best possible solutions. He has verified that the bearing load option in StressCheck® provides excellent results.”
