StressCheck Tutorial: Influence of Stress Singularities On Multi-Body Contact Resultant Calculations
Abstract: Demonstrating the influence of stress singularities on multi-body contact resultant calculations and load transfer feedback. When the discretization at the contact zone boundary is not sufficient, it may be necessary to include additional element faces outside the contact region to improve the resultant calculation.

“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.”
