Dr. Ivo Babuška, co-founder of ESRD, passed away on April 12, 2023 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He made important contributions to the reliability of finite element methods, the development of a general framework for finite element error estimation, and the development of the p- and hp-versions of the finite element method. We will miss his counsel, his unique insights and quick wit.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 the October 2018 issue of NAFEMS Benchmark magazine, ESRD Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó posed a new “FEA Puzzler”: Can you determine the progression in spring rate as a 3D coil spring is deformed? And, can you verify the accuracy of your solution? Give it your best shot!
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.
A new Simulation Governance (SimGov)-oriented article by ESRD’s Dr. Barna Szabo and Dr. Ricardo Actis, titled “Planning for Simulation Governance and Management – Ensuring Simulation is an Asset, not a Liability”, is available to read in the July 2021 issue of NAFEMS Benchmark magazine.
“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.”
