StressCheck Tutorial: Stepped Ply Bonded Lap Joint (Extruded)
Abstract: Parametric geometry creation for a stepped ply bonded lap joint configuration. Generation of a quad-mesh (automesh of quadrilateral elements), definition and assignment of laminate orthotropic and adhesive (bond) material properties, and then the conversion of the quad-mesh to 3D hexahedra by selecting the Extrude reference.

“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.”
