StressCheck Tutorial: Setting Up Solution Convergence Criteria
Abstract: Customizing a convergence criteria-controlled linear p-extension. Any number of convergence criteria (e.g. saved extraction settings within the Error tab, Min/Max tab, Points tab, or Resultant tab) may be specified and error tolerances provided for each convergence criteria setting. When the convergence criteria setting is selected in the SOLVE! tab, the linear p-extension will stop when the convergence criterion/criteria error tolerance(s) are met.

“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.”
