THE ACCURACY OF STRESS CONCENTRATION ESTIMATION BY FINITE ELEMENT METHOD IN PLATES WITH CUTOUTS AND NOTCHES

In this paper the author studies the accuracy of the results which can be achieved when calculating stress concentration in plates with notches and cutouts using the computer code PANFEM (PANels by Finite Element Method). Also, a method is given for the estimation of the stress concentration coefficient exact value together with estimation of magnitude of its error in relation to the number of elements used during the calculation. It is concluded that the precision of the results obtained with PANFEM are satisfactory.
