ESRD’s software products and consulting services provide crucial support to a variety of aerospace and defense systems, enabling contractors and engineers with the tools, strategies and methodologies required to perform engineering simulations that are Simple, Accurate, Fast, Efficient and Reliable for the occasional user as well as the expert.
Aerospace and Defense System Support
In the Aerospace & Defense application demo shown below, ESRD and our partner Altair collaborated on a global-local workflow for an aero wing flap hinge fitting detailed stress analysis (model and input data courtesy of Altair).
Here are a few of the aviation, aerospace, and defense programs to which ESRD has contributed our simulation software, engineering consulting, or research & development expertise.

The finite element method is used by engineers daily in the design/assessment of components and structures. The number of engineers using such tools is increasing and will increase further with the so-called democratisation of simulation. However, whilst the method might appear easy to use, with highly effective graphical user interfaces, the fundamental fact is that it is approximate and can produce significant errors in the hands of the inexperienced engineer. These errors, if undetected, can compromise a design to such an extent that it becomes unfit for purpose or, even, unsafe. The way to avoid such finite element malpractice is through the application of sound simulation governance.
