AFRL CAI Success Story
Abstract: The two directorates, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Bell Helicopter make up the CAI team. The team developed and enhanced finite element software for analysis of composite structures. The StressCheck analysis tool shows a significant improvement in bonded and co-cured joint strength prediction capabilities compared to finite element analysis tools currently on the market.

“We have found StressCheck® very useful for computational fracture mechanics for both metallic and composite components. In recent years it has been extensively used in determining beta factors for RAAF’s C-130 Wing DTA locations and associated generic research.”
