TLAP Bearing Technical Brief
Abstract: Global-Local analysis refers to the importation of point loads or point constraints from a subdomain of a global shell model and their application to a StressCheck detail model. In this tech brief, we will address the importation of total load at points (TLAP) to be applied to the faces of solid elements as bearing loads (TLAP-Bearing).

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.”
