The metaLUG tool allows convenient calculation of single-shear lug margins of safety. Simply input geometry and loads, choose a material and click the 'Calculate' button. This tool uses legacy methods that have been validated through test and years of usage in the aerospace industry. After you're satisfied with your lug design, simply export the results to Excel and move on to the next task.

Highlighted features:

  • Single-shear lug margins of safety
  • Predefined material library
  • Export results to clipboard for use in Excel
  • Free to use!

Coming soon:

  • Double-shear lug margins of safety
 

The calCLT tool calculates composite ABD matrices and in-plane elastic moduli using classical laminated plate theory (CLPT). It allows users to input custom material properties and any number of plies. The ABD matrix can be used for ply stress and strain development, properties for finite element analysis and many other calculations for laminated composite structures. The results from this tool can be easily copied to the clipboard for use in Excel.

Highlighted features:

  • Custom material input
  • Custom layups, unlimited plies and angles
  • Export results to clipboard for use in Excel
  • Free to use!

Future Products


 Xross2D

The Xross2D tool will allow you to define custom homogeneous cross-sections built up from various geometries. It will calculate area moments of inertia, centroids and other properties that can be used for finite element modeling, beam shear/moment diagrams and more.

BJSFM

The Bolted Joint Stress Field Method (BJSFM) is a popular industry standard method for calculating strains and stresses around bolted joints in orthotropic materials. As a legacy method, the original BJSFM program was not meant to be used in browsers or served over the internet. Our version will be. It will be freely available for use on our website at any time and from anywhere.

J-SEP

The J-SEP tool will give you access to joint separation analysis tool freely available online. You will be able to define fastener torque, preload, multiple plate joints and applied loads. The tool will tell you when or if your joint will separate and give you fastener margins of safety.

MatCurves

The MatCurves program will produce full elastic-plastic curves for metallic materials with minimal input. The output from this tool will be useful for non-linear finite element analyses and other calculations that take advantage of material plasticity.
