The Composites Affordability Initiative (CAI) unanimously selected ESRD’s composites functionality to “replace as well as radically improve existing industry software currently used for bonded joints.” In time, the improvements extended to fastened laminated composite and metallic-laminated joints, reinforced composite structures, multi-scale analysis and more.
Instead of plate or shell modeling, we focus on the important details, such as interlaminar failure modes and thru-thickness ply stresses.
Our implementation is unique in the FEA industry for focusing on the detailed analysis needs of composite designers and engineers, including 3D ply-by-ply modeling and failure analysis.

“Through the use of StressCheck the A-10 Aircraft Structural Integrity Program’s (ASIP) Analysis Group is able to model more accurately the physics of fatigue crack propagation in critical aircraft structure. Through this tool we are able to model, analyze and predict failure of aircraft structure and then develop crucial inspection and maintenance planes to ensure the safety and sustainability of our nations warplanes. Without the analysis capability provided to us through StressCheck we would not be able to provide accurate assessments of the A-10 structure to top USAF leadership.”
