TLAP Bearing Technical Brief
Abstract: Global-Local analysis refers to the importation of point loads or point constraints from a subdomain of a global shell model and their application to a StressCheck detail model. In this tech brief, we will address the importation of total load at points (TLAP) to be applied to the faces of solid elements as bearing loads (TLAP-Bearing).

“Accurate and reliable stresses and Stress Intensity Factors are required for determination of static and residual strength and for crack growth analyses in analysis tools such as AFGROW. For some geometries, industry solutions are either insufficient or nonexistent. The geometry, applied forces, and crack shapes and dimensions must be modeled reasonably well to obtain useful engineering data. The p-version finite element software StressCheck® (ESRD, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri, USA) is used to demonstrate how accurate finite element solutions can lead to good quality engineering analysis.”
