Evaluating Singular Stress Fields

Application ID: 125151

A detailed description of these models can be found in our blog post “How Should I Evaluate Singular Stress Fields?”.

The models are:

  • notchedStrip.mph – Model for the initial studies of the stress field properties.
  • singularityPower.mph – Small model solving the transcendental equation that give the exponent for the stress singularity for corners with different angles.
  • stripInternalCorner.mph – FE Verification of singularity strength for different corner angles.
  • materialTransition.mph – Shows the effect on stress from of a transition between two different materials.
  • percentileMethod.mph – Shows how to perform an evaluation using the percentile method.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
