Help Us Improve Your StressCheck Experience
On Wednesday, June 20, 2018 a webinar titled “Hierarchic Approaches to Modeling Fastened Connections” was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster and Gordon Lehman. In case you missed it, the webinar recording is now available!
This past year, ESRD's Drs. Barna Szabó and Ricardo Actis collaborated with NAVAIR's Mr. Dave Rusk on a technical paper titled "Fatigue Life Prediction of Flaw-Tolerant Damaged Rotorcraft Structures". This paper was presented at the American Helicopter Society Annual Forum 74 in Phoenix, Arizona May 14-17, 2018. Download the paper and presentation from our Resource Library!
On April 10th, ESRD and Altair co-presented a novel Aerospace & Defense (A&D) industry webinar, "Global-Local Workflows and High-Fidelity Stress Analysis for a Wing Flap Hinge Fitting". If you were not able to attend, don't worry; the on-demand webinar is now available! [...]
“At DST Group, we have effectively used StressCheck® over the last 10 years to determine accurate stress intensity factors. The results have been used to improve our residual strength and structural life estimates for aircraft in service with the Royal Australian Airforce, including C-130, P-3C and F/A-18 A/B. We have found it to be extremely easy to use and a very versatile code with which to create parametric models.
We have recently used StressCheck® to obtain improved stress intensity factor solutions (Improved stress intensity factors for selected configurations in cracked plates and Improved stress intensity factors for a single corner crack at a loaded fastener hole) for five key generic configurations. These transferable parametric results have been published externally. One specific example is the non-linear contact analysis of a cracked, filled fastener hole, with both fastener and remote plate loading.”
