Helpful Hints and Tips: Nonlinear Load Stepping
Abstract: Load stepping is an incremental approach to achieving a target value for an applied load/displacement. In the event that the nonlinear analysis fails prematurely before reading a target value, load stepping should be used.

“Of the three FEA products we use, StressCheck® gives me the most confidence when it comes to performing post-processing quality checks on multi-body contact analysis results. StressCheck® has the capability to extract any data of interest and convergence information for that data at any location in the model domain; the other two FEA products do not. And when it comes to interference fit multi-body contact solutions, I haven’t found any software to outperform StressCheck®.”
