StressCheck Tutorial: Transitioning from Part Thru to Thru Crack
Abstract: Embedding an elliptical part thru crack in an offset hole edge, then transitioning the parametric crack from a part thru to a thru thickness configuration. Crack automeshing strategies, including recommendations for increasing the boundary layer Ratio value once the crack has transitioned to a thru thickness configuration.

“In the case of the through crack configuration, the comparison of experimental and StressCheck® derived geometry factors showed a close correlation and were an improvement to solutions provided in AFGROW at the time. Based on the results of this research, StressCheck® pin-loaded lug geometry factors have since been incorporated into the AFGROW software.”
