In mid-May 2023, ESRD’s Co-Founder and Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó will deliver a keynote presentation at the ASME VVUQ 2023 Symposium in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Dr. Szabó’s presentation, entitled “Simulation Governance: An Idea Whose Time Has Come”, will focus on the goals and means of Simulation Governance with reference to mechanical/aerospace engineering practice.
On February 7, 2023 a 2-hour webinar titled “What’s New and Improved in StressCheck Professional” was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster to a group of StressCheck enthusiasts. This webinar provided demonstrations of the “latest and greatest” enhancements in StressCheck v11.1, and a look toward future development activities happening in StressCheck v11.2. In case you missed it, the webinar slides and the webinar recording are now available!
Join us for a 2-hour webinar on the latest in StressCheck Professional, as well as what’s currently under development in our next software update. After the webinar, attendees will be encouraged to stay for an open discussion on future development activities.
We are pleased to announce a 2-hour webinar on February 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm EST titled “What’s New and Improved in StressCheck Professional“. Demos and briefings will be provided on the following new features and enhancements, as well as features under development for our next release.
StressCheck v11.1 Release
New features and enhancements already available with the latest StressCheck release (v11.1) include but are not limited to:
Support for mixed (tetra/penta/hexa) meshes
Support for parametric scaling of global-local loads
Upgraded infrastructure for faster model rendering and updating
Improvements to load record management and load attribute rendering
Improved strategies for 3D crack automeshing
Improved strategies for 3D stress intensity factor (SIF) computation
Enhancements to support the automeshing of thin parts and domains
New CHM-based offline documentation
New COM API documentation
StressCheck v11.2 Development Activities
Expected features and enhancements for our next StressCheck release (v11.2, expected in Summer 2023) will include:
Mesh seeding to guide the Automesh by automatically using pre-existing node locations.
Upgraded toolbar icons for a clear and improved user experience.
New option to select the toolbar icons between 16×16 (default), 20×20 and 24×24 pixels size.
Movable Min/Max labels for Results plotting and extractions.
A Dependencies button on the Parameter pane which lists all dependencies on the selected parameter.
Column sorting and filtering for Parameters pane table including “Go To” to search for parameters.
Predictive text on input fields has been implemented for parameter and formula names.
Enhanced Index controls for filtering and sorting Geometry and Mesh object lists. including “Go To ID…” to access a specific ID.
Improved visualization of Selected status on dropdown lists containing assignment/set records.
Overhauled the Display Objects pane to support selective number ranges and additional object types.
Re-designed color definitions pane.
A list of object IDs belonging to a set “Contents:” and a list of objects that reference the set “Used By:” are now displayed when selecting a record on the Sets page.
Improved consistency of DeLast/Undo functionality
And much more under development!
We will also host a Q&A session at the end of the webinar to allow attendees to interact with and provide feedback to members of our product development team.

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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
In this 15-minute pre-recorded webinar, ESRD Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó addresses some of the key issues of simulation governance, including how model development must adhere to the requirements of simulation governance in order to minimize risk and increase reliability.
On February 12, 2020 a webinar on tips & resources for enhancing our users’ StressCheck Professional knowledge, titled “Mastering StressCheck: Practical Training Approaches & Online Resources for A&D Engineers”, was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster. In case you missed it, the webinar slides and on-demand recording are now available!
“Aerospace materials scientists and structural engineers now have a new state-of-the-art software product called StressCheck, which provides efficient and reliable analysis tools for composite bonded aircraft structures. A composites research team from the aeronautics industry, known as the Composites Affordability Initiative (CAI), has just completed an extensive study of current capabilities in the area of failure analysis tools for composite bonded joints. This study led the CAI team to unanimously choose StressCheck as the software tool to replace as well as radically improve existing industry standard software currently used to size bonded joints.”
