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).

“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.”
