Recently, Wiley published the second edition of “Finite Element Analysis: Method, Verification and Validation” by ESRD Co-Founders Dr. Barna Szabo and Dr. Ivo Babuška as part of their “Wiley Series in Computational Mechanics”. This edition provides an updated and comprehensive review of the theoretical foundation of the finite element method, and provides engineering students and professionals the tools, concepts, techniques, and procedures that help with an understanding of finite element analysis.
ESRD is pleased to announce that we’ve released StressCheck® Professional v11 Update 1. In addition to all the improvements introduced with the release of StressCheck® v11, in Update 1 we have optimized the Solve and Results panes for maximum efficiency and improved user flow.
All major engineering organizations use numerical simulation in support of decisions pertaining to design and design certification. The question of how well numerical simulation is managed is being addressed by the various stakeholders with increasing urgency. It is now generally recognized that numerical simulation, properly managed, can be a major corporate asset but poorly managed, or not managed at all, can become a major corporate liability. Find out why in the latest Safer Simulation article from ESRD.
New Webinar: Simulation Governance Is Critical for Reliable Condition-Based (Predictive) Maintenance
ESRD is pleased to announce a new webinar, scheduled for April 22, 2021 @ 11:00 am EST.
This webinar, hosted by ESRD partner Revolution in Simulation, will present a case study in which the goal was the development of a mathematical model for supporting condition-based maintenance (CBM) decisions.
With the release of StressCheck® v11 in December 2020, ESRD unveiled a significantly improved user interface experience, a voluminous online documentation portal, and a re-written Getting Started Guide with a companion video tutorial. In addition, we’ve revamped our Getting Started page, with helpful links for member registration, licensing & installation, the basics of StressCheck® usage, and other key links & resources. In short, it’s never been easier to learn StressCheck®!
In late February 2021, ESRD’s CAE Handbook was officially added to the Altair Partner Alliance (APA). CAE Handbook provides an elegant and intuitive framework for deploying StressCheck®-powered digital handbook solutions.
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.

“We have been having very good success using the P-Version finite element code, StressCheck®, to develop the 2-D solutions for two independent cracks in a plate. I have asked one of our AFGROW team members to model the plate and lug cases using StressCheck® and compare them to the existing AFGROW closed-form solutions. [He] modeled the cases several different ways to be sure that he was getting the best possible solutions. He has verified that the bearing load option in StressCheck® provides excellent results.”
