ASIP 2018 Training – Modeling Fastened Connections: Hierarchic Approaches Discussion and Demo
Abstract: This 2-hour training course will discuss a hierarchic approach to modeling fastened joints using Finite element Analysis (FEA) with specific examples and case studies using professional FEA software. Model conceptualization, including all simplifying assumptions based on both the available information and the data of interest will be covered as well.
Originally presented as a training course at the 2018 ASIP conference in Phoenix, AZ.

“Through the use of StressCheck® the A-10 Aircraft Structural Integrity Program’s (ASIP) Analysis Group is able to model more accurately the physics of fatigue crack propagation in critical aircraft structure. Through this tool we are able to model, analyze and predict failure of aircraft structure and then develop crucial inspection and maintenance planes to ensure the safety and sustainability of our nations warplanes. Without the analysis capability provided to us through StressCheck® we would not be able to provide accurate assessments of the A-10 structure to top USAF leadership.”
