StressCheck Web-Based Basic Training plus Linear Elasticity

The StressCheck Web-Based Basic Training plus Linear Elasticity class is a 5-day course designed to familiarize the user with the StressCheck graphical user interface and provide an introduction to the finite element technology implemented in StressCheck. The course addresses 2D and 3D model construction techniques, executing sequences of linear solutions on a fixed mesh, and performing a wide range of post-processing operations including convergence assessments. Lectures and hands-on tutorials covering the fundamental concepts of the technology that include meshing, applying boundary conditions and quality assurance procedures are provided.

Course Objectives:
  • Obtain a basic knowledge of 2D and 3D model construction techniques
    • Creating and importing geometry
    • Defining mesh objects, like nodes and elements
    • Automeshing
    • Define and assign linear material properties
    • Assign boundary conditions
  • Learn how to execute a linear solution by p-extension
  • Perform a wide range of post-processing operations
    • Error extractions
    • Plotting
    • Convergence checking
    • Gradients

In addition, trainees will receive lectures covering the fundamental concepts of the p-FEM and StressCheck’s technology that include meshing, applying boundary conditions and quality assurance procedures.

Who should attend? This workshop is geared toward new users of StressCheck who have not yet received a StressCheck Basic Training course, and to those wanting to know more about the technology and capabilities of StressCheck before using the software in production mode. It is expected to have familiarity with the finite element method (FEM) and a background in solid mechanics.

Basic training is a prerequisite to StressCheck Advanced Web-Based Training in Fracure Mechanics.
