Practical Convergence-Divergence Checks for Stresses from FEA

Abstract

In practice in finite-element stress analysis, the engineer first needs to know if key stresses are converging, and second if they have converged to a reasonable level of accuracy. Then these stresses can be reliably used in design. The engineer further needs to know if, instead, key stresses are diverging because of singularities present. Then these… (More)
