Simulations of bending and twisting of surface mounted assemblies have been performed using the hybrid analytical/experimental analysis approach, and the results are presented. Analytical analyses were combined with experimental load-deformation characteristics of the surface mounted assemblies to predict the maximum allowable loadings and deflections that the surface mounted assemblies can withstand before incurring failures. The simulation results were in close agreement with the real loading situations.
