StressCheck Tutorial: Performing h-Discretization to Refine Manually Generated Meshes
Abstract: If convergence is not achieved for a full p-extension on a manually-generated mesh of hexahedra/pentahedra (3D) or quads/tris (Planar), h-Discretization is the most efficient way to refine the mesh. Manually-generated meshes can be refined uniformly for elements, or geometrically graded from selected geometric boundaries, element faces (3D) or element edges (Planar).

“Aerospace materials scientists and structural engineers now have a new state-of-the-art software product called StressCheck®, which provides efficient and reliable analysis tools for composite bonded aircraft structures. A composites research team from the aeronautics industry, known as the Composites Affordability Initiative (CAI), has just completed an extensive study of current capabilities in the area of failure analysis tools for composite bonded joints. This study led the CAI team to unanimously choose StressCheck® as the software tool to replace as well as radically improve existing industry standard software currently used to size bonded joints.”
