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.

“In the case of the through crack configuration, the comparison of experimental and StressCheck® derived geometry factors showed a close correlation and were an improvement to solutions provided in AFGROW at the time. Based on the results of this research, StressCheck® pin-loaded lug geometry factors have since been incorporated into the AFGROW software.”
