StressCheck Tutorial: Preserving Assignments using Locate Sets
Abstract: Preserving assignment of boundary conditions using Locate sets. Locate sets do not depend on surface numbering, but on a pick point box. Useful for converting detailed stress geometry to fracture mechanics geometry (e.g. embedding crack surface).

“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”
