StressCheck Tutorial: Converting TLAP-Tractions in a Hole to a Single TLAP-Bearing
Abstract: Converting a TLAP-Traction load record to a statically-equivalent single TLAP-Bearing load record for smooth hole stresses.
- Apply a group of TLAPs to a lug bore with TLAP-Traction
- Check the statics, get the location of the hole center, and then copy this data to a new TLAP case ID
- Apply the new TLAP case ID to the lug bore with TLAP-Bearing

“As the United States Air Force continues to extend the service life of their aircraft the Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP) has had to refine the methods it uses to analyze and predict fatigue crack growth. Through the use StressCheck®, coupled with AFGROW, we in A-10 ASIP have been able to more accurately model, predict and analyze critical aircraft structure for the A-10 and other types of structure for non-A-10 system managers. This also allows us within the A-10 to more accurately assess risk for decision makers, streamline aircraft inductions into scheduled maintenance and reduce cost for total life cycle management.”
