ESRD’s Dr. Ricardo Actis attended and presented with technology partner Analytical Processes/Engineered Solutions (AP/ES) at the Engineered Residual Stress Implementation (ERSI) Workshop 2019 in Clearfield, UT. The goal of this annual workshop is to develop a roadmap for the implementation of the beneficial effect of engineered residual stresses in damage tolerance analysis (DTA).
Also, ESRD would like to extend our sincerest congratulations to the Washington University St. Louis racing team, who we sponsored this past year to improvements in multiple events, including engineering design. Great job, team!
ESRD, Inc. will be exhibiting and providing a training course on automated 3D crack beta curve development via FEA-based #SimApps at the ASIP Conference 2019 in San Antonio, TX from December 2-5, 2019.
On July 29, 2019 a joint webinar on the the importance of Simulation Governance in FEA-based Sim App development & deployment, titled “Democratization of Simulation Governance-Compliant Sim Apps”, was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster and Rev-Sim’s Malcolm Panthaki. In case you missed it, the webinar recording is now available!
On July 17, 2019 a joint webinar on the latest developments in FEA-based 3D crack growth simulation, titled “3D Crack Growth Simulation: Advancements & Applications”, was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster, LexTech’s James Harter and Hill Engineering’s Joshua Hodges. In case you missed it, the webinar recording is now available!
Want to learn from the experts in FEA-based Simulation Application (Sim App) development for standardization & automation of complex engineering analysis tasks, such as 3D fatigue crack growth, 3D ply-by-ply laminated composite analysis or other challenging applications you’d like to safely put into the hands of non-experts?
This July, ESRD will be partnering with several industry leaders to provide not one but TWO stimulating webinars on the latest in FEA-based Sim App development.
ESRD is pleased to join Hill Engineering, LLC (developers of BAMF) and LexTech, Inc. (developers of AFGROW) for a joint webinar on July 17, 2019 @ 1:00 pm EST.
This collaborative webinar will be titled “3D Crack Growth Simulation: Advancements & Applications”, and will detail the latest technological advancements for accurate simulation of three-dimensional metallic crack growth via coupled finite element analysis (FEA) and fatigue life computations.
This past week at AA&S/PS&S 2019, ESRD’s Gordon Lehman provided a training course titled “How Do You Verify the Accuracy of Engineering Simulations?”, chatted with attendees about StressCheck® and how it supports detailed aerostructures analyses, and exhibited at our colorful & engaging booth.

The software provides a highly reliable and user-friendly production stress analysis tool that will replace the Finite Element Method (FEM) tools and failure criteria the experts currently employ for analyzing bonded joints. The software includes an FEM-based handbook format, which allows non-experts to utilize models prepared by specialists. The handbook problems include built-in failure criteria, geometric and material nonlinearities, and the modern FEM technology provides better error control and the treatment of very large aspect ratios.”
