    Tangent curve, function fillets for reduced notch stresses in parametric designs

    F. R

      Hello,

       

      to reduce notch stresses in corners i would like to add tangent curved fillets (see picture). (Claus Mattheck http://bibliothek.fzk.de/zb/berichte/Mattheck-Poster-050901.pdf)

       

      At the moment i have to construct a tangent curve with the "Equation Driven Curve" tool, but this is not very flexible for parametric designs.

       

      How do alternatives approaches look like to use tangent curved fillets?

       

      Best Regards

      F.R.
