As products become increasingly complex, with downward pressure on overall pricing, this has led to an inevitable increase in the geometric complexity of mechanical components. While this has allowed components to perform multiple functions, it has led to complex load transfers and possible concentrations of stresses. A stress concentration is defined as a high localized stress, compared to the average stress of the body, and is typically found in a region that has an abrupt geometric change.
Our latest Hardware Guide post will show you how to identify stress concentrations in your designs, and then show you how to reduce stress concentrations using real-world examples to illustrate the concept.
We go over common issues to avoid for reducing stress concentrations, including:
By reducing stress concentration in your designs, you should be able to achieve higher load ratings, reliability, and fatigue life. Check out our latest Hardware Guide post to learn more!
