To perform `static analysis on crank shaft to find stress concentration areas. An arbitrary number of fluid film bearings can be defined to couple the finite element structures. Various (elasto-) hydrodynamic calculation models can be selected depending on the needs of accuracy and computational speed. In the elastohydrodynamic solution a substructuring method is employed and Reynolds' equation, including mass conserving cavitation, is solved on the bearing surface of the substructure using finite element methods.
