Once you solve a fracture application with StressCheck®, you won’t want to use another FEA tool for that purpose again. You will experience ease of use, realize superconvergent extractions and receive the high definition feedback you need to guarantee the reliability and accuracy of the computed stress intensity factors (SIF) and energy release rates (ERR).
Fracture Mechanics Applications
When 3D surface flaws in complex parts need to be analyzed, StressCheck® is the logical choice.
StressCheck® is ideally suited for damage tolerance and forensic engineers who need the best representation of 2D or 3D SIF’s, ERR’s and beta factors for input in sophisticated crack growth simulations, or when analyzing repairs for mitigation of cracks.

“Small errors in modeling can lead to substantial errors in joint performance prediction. To alleviate this problem, the CAI used the handbook functionality of ESRD Inc.’s (St. Louis, Mo.) trademarked StressCheck® P-version finite element software to develop reusable models of typical joints.”
