StressCheck Tutorial: Mapping Cold Working Residual Stresses to a Reamed Part via BRS Method
Abstract: Mapping residual stresses generated by cold working to a reamed part via Bulk Residual Stress (BRS) mapping and loading methods. Using Solution Configurations + Parts and the StressCheck BRS Module to:
- Solve a Cold Working (CX) analysis via Incremental theory of plasticity and Nonlinear Events
- Map the post-CX residual stress distribution to the reamed part using BRS mapping
- Apply the BRS-mapped stress distribution to the reamed part as a new load case
- Solve for stress redistribution in the reamed part.

“In the case of the through crack configuration, the comparison of experimental and StressCheck® derived geometry factors showed a close correlation and were an improvement to solutions provided in AFGROW at the time. Based on the results of this research, StressCheck® pin-loaded lug geometry factors have since been incorporated into the AFGROW software.”
