StressCheck Tutorial: Force/Moment Load
Abstract: For flat coplanar surface and element face surface selections, a Force/Moment load method is provided to apply the directional components of force and moment vectors defined on a local (or the global) system as a statically equivalent linear traction distribution.

“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”
