089: Link Plate

Linear-elastic static stress analysis of a link plate assembly, including non-linear contact, subjected to a tensile load. A quarter model was used for the analysis. Due to the nature of the contact between the link plate and the chain link, it was recommended to re-run the analysis with a non-linear material model.
