StressCheck Tool Box
Powerful and Fast FEA-Based Solutions For Common Engineering Problems.
The StressCheck Tool Box (SCTB) is a 64-bit stand-alone, Windows-based application which provides a robust, easy to use framework for solving common, but inherently challenging, engineering problems. The current target audience for SCTB applications is engineers who are not experienced in FEA but have a demand for repetitive, but high-quality, solutions in the area of fastened connections. Fully supports Windows 7 and 8.
Single Fastener Analysis Tool
Our Single Fastener Analysis Tool (SFAT) provides accurate computation of the joint stiffness, plate stresses, and fastener loads for single or double shear lap joints connected by a single fastener.
Multi-Fastener Analysis Tool
Our Multi-Fastener Analysis Tool (MFAT) provides effortless modeling of single or double shear joints, including lap joints, splice joints, and doublers (with or without a repair cutout). MFAT supports metallic and composite plates,and allows for any number of fasteners with neat fit, interference fit or clearance fit.
Laminate Cutout Analysis Tool
Our Laminate Cutout Analysis Tool (LCAT) computes the strain distribution around a circular, elliptical, or racetrack cutout in a composite plate subjected to biaxial and shear loading. Additionally, LCAT determines the margin of safety for strain and the orthotropic strain concentration factor.
Key Features and Advantages
- No FEA or StressCheck experience is necessary to successfully run SCTB applications
- Solutions may be exported and opened in StressCheck Professional.
- Does not require an existing installation of StressCheck to operate
- Simple to use interface requires minimal training to be productive
- All applications support SI and US Customary units
The software provides a highly reliable and user-friendly production stress analysis tool that will replace the Finite Element Method (FEM) tools and failure criteria the experts currently employ for analyzing bonded joints. The software includes an FEM-based handbook format, which allows non-experts to utilize models prepared by specialists. The handbook problems include built-in failure criteria, geometric and material nonlinearities, and the modern FEM technology provides better error control and the treatment of very large aspect ratios.”
