StressCheck Tutorial: Object Associativity
Abstract: Demonstration of implicit and explicit object associativity, and the importance of object associativity to StressCheck’s implementation. Also, how to determine object associativities and disassociate explicitly associative points and systems from geometry.

The software provides a highly reliable and user-friendly production stress analysis tool that will replace the Finite Element Method (FEM) tools and failure criteria the experts currently employ for analyzing bonded joints. The software includes an FEM-based handbook format, which allows non-experts to utilize models prepared by specialists. The handbook problems include built-in failure criteria, geometric and material nonlinearities, and the modern FEM technology provides better error control and the treatment of very large aspect ratios.”
