    Stress concerntration

    Ryan Delacourt

      I hope someone can help me on this, I am currently analysing a valve system, one of the studies that I am conducting is a applied torque from the shaft of the disc (mainly testing to see if the ribs are suitable). However i am getting a stress figure that is very close to yield (205 Mpa) I have applied a mesh control to the high stress area but my i'm not confident in the result as the concentration is right on an edge (there is a shaft that fits in the slot ),

       

      What would generally be the approach that someone would take to this?

       

      Regards
