While this past year presented unique challenges and unprecedented disturbances, we hope that you found our customer support, on-demand webinars, web-based training services and overall experience with our team to be refreshingly positive. Click to see a special message from ESRD!
In early 2020 ESRD rolled out v2.0 of the StressCheck® User Experience survey, and the results have been tallied! Find out what features & applications your peers want to see in a future StressCheck® release.
We realize right now is an uncertain time for our customers. We would like to assure you that your software and sales support needs will be met during this period of disruption.
Hill Engineering and ESRD have executed a joint marketing agreement to collaboratively promote the combined use of our software tools Broad Application for Modeling Failure (BAMF) and StressCheck® Professional, respectively, for the engineering applications of fatigue and damage tolerance analysis.
ESRD is pleased to announce our first webinar of 2020, scheduled for February 12 @ 1:00 pm EST.
This 2-hour, user-oriented webinar “Mastering StressCheck®: Practical Training Approaches & Online Resources for A&D Engineers” will detail training approaches focused on applications to make numerical simulation via finite element analysis S.A.F.E.R. – Simple, Accurate, Fast, Efficient, and Reliable.
We wish you good tidings and a S.A.F.E.R. New Year! Click to see a special message from ESRD.
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!
In NAFEMS’ July 2019 edition of Benchmark Magazine, ESRD Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó reveals the converged StressCheck® solution for the incremental spring rates, provides a summary of the FEA Puzzler respondent submissions, and documents the various approaches taken by the respondents.
Thirty years ago, on August 2nd, 1989, Engineering Software Research & Development, Inc. (ESRD) was founded in St. Louis, MO, USA. To commemorate this milestone, ESRD’s President & CEO Dr. Ricardo Actis would like to share a few words with you. Please take a few moments to read his commemoration.
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.

“The p-type element has been used to great advantage in the finite element system ESRD StressCheck®, . This software provides the engineer with the means to conduct solution verification in an extremely straightforward manner by simply increasing the degree of the element, monitoring convergence and using Richardson extrapolation reliably to estimate the error. This can be conducted automatically by the software thereby enabling the engineer to concentrate on the engineering rather than the simulation. StressCheck® has also been used to develop ESRD’s Handbook and Toolbox applications. The first of these provides engineers with a repository of parameterised standard problems of the type found in texts like Roark’s “Formulas for Stress and Strain”, . The second, Toolbox, is a tool that can be used to parameterise a company’s range of components for rapid and reliable analysis by non-expert analysis. Toolbox then is an exemplary of the way in which the democratisation of simulation can be applied.”
