Helpful Hints and Tips: Using the 3-2-1 Rigid Body Constraint Approach
Abstract: This presentation demonstrates the 3-2-1 rigid body constraint approach as described by Tony Abbey’s article “Free-Floating FEA Models” in Digital Engineering. Free-floating is self-equilibrated under the applied load.

“We have been having very good success using the P-Version finite element code, StressCheck®, to develop the 2-D solutions for two independent cracks in a plate. I have asked one of our AFGROW team members to model the plate and lug cases using StressCheck® and compare them to the existing AFGROW closed-form solutions. [He] modeled the cases several different ways to be sure that he was getting the best possible solutions. He has verified that the bearing load option in StressCheck® provides excellent results”
