StressCheck Tutorial: Planar Modeling of a Skin-Stiffener-Fasteners Assembly
Abstract: Modeling of a Planar skin, stiffener and fasteners (as fastener/link elements) assembly for an in-plane, general nonlinear analysis. In-plane axial loads only, in which the stiffener/skin load ratio is 0.55. Model pre-processing only.

“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”
