Helpful Hints and Tips: Solution Configurations
Abstract: This presentation shows how to set up solution configurations, which are useful for analyzing multiple model configurations in a single StressCheck session and investigating model variations that may be topologically different. The presentation includes steps to define parts based on specified element groups, how to specify parts and solution IDs (load/constraint pairs) when setting up solution configurations, as well as some basic post-processing when multiple solution IDs are present.

“Accurate and reliable stresses and Stress Intensity Factors are required for determination of static and residual strength and for crack growth analyses in analysis tools such as AFGROW. For some geometries, industry solutions are either insufficient or nonexistent. The geometry, applied forces, and crack shapes and dimensions must be modeled reasonably well to obtain useful engineering data. The p-version finite element software StressCheck® (ESRD, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri, USA) is used to demonstrate how accurate finite element solutions can lead to good quality engineering analysis.”
