StressCheck Tutorial: Sample Global-Local Workflow for a 3D Rib Stress Analysis
Abstract: Sample global-local workflow using imported NASTRAN gridpoint forces (in CSV format) to represent cap axial and web shear loading at a rib section. Application of imported Total Load At A Point forces using TLAP-Traction, Near Faces over the cut sections and fastener locations along the rib. Detailed breakout stress analysis with peak stress extractions at holes a sufficient distance from the regions of TLAP-Traction assignment.
