Hierarchic Approaches to Modeling Fastened Connections Webinar
This webinar will focus on best practices for accurately modeling & analyzing fastened connections and joints, including appropriate simplifying assumptions based on the data of interest.
- Hierarchic modeling of fastened connections, including Planar-only (fastener + link + 2D elements), multi-body contact (load transfer between all parts), plug/partial contact (load transfer between notable parts), & normal springs (compression-only single part analysis) approaches.
- Pros, cons and applicability of each hierarchic approach will be analyzed.
- CASE STUDY: 3D Lug Comparison – Multi-body contact, plug/partial contact & normal springs.
- LIVE DEMO: You will learn the process of checking reactions in contact regions/holes, as well as how to perform live-dynamic processing of detailed stresses in multi-part assemblies.

“At DST Group, we have effectively used StressCheck® over the last 10 years to determine accurate stress intensity factors. The results have been used to improve our residual strength and structural life estimates for aircraft in service with the Royal Australian Airforce, including C-130, P-3C and F/A-18 A/B. We have found it to be extremely easy to use and a very versatile code with which to create parametric models.
We have recently used StressCheck® to obtain improved stress intensity factor solutions (Improved stress intensity factors for selected configurations in cracked plates and Improved stress intensity factors for a single corner crack at a loaded fastener hole) for five key generic configurations. These transferable parametric results have been published externally. One specific example is the non-linear contact analysis of a cracked, filled fastener hole, with both fastener and remote plate loading.”
