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!
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!
This past week at ASIP 2017, ESRD provided a training course titled “How to use the Crack Propagation Analysis Tool for 3D Crack Simulation”, presented a track presentation “Pros and Cons of 3D Crack Growth Simulation using Finite Elements” and exhibited at our booth. Read the summary of events […]
With the release of StressCheck v11.1, we have made tremendous improvements to model rendering, load arrow drawing and load record updating performances to provide the user with maximum efficiency. This release also provides new mixed element meshing functionality in the Crack Front and Boundary Layer methods as well as the all-new Thin Section method, which allow the user to utilize pentahedral and hexahedral elements together with a traditional all-tetrahedral automesh. These improved, high-quality meshes can provide the user more accurate results with less computational cost, especially for fracture and contact problems.
StressCheck v11.1 also boasts improvements for Global-Local analysis in the form of TLAP scaling parameters and improved GUI options for point load/constraint rendering, as well as updates to the COM API functionality and the StressCheck Offline Documentation.
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.
In recent years, Digital Engineering contributor, NAFEMS instructor and FETraining.net developer Tony Abbey has put together a list of practical engineering simulation case studies, walk-thrus and software overviews for a variety of FEA software tools.
Watch as ESRD reproduces a selected set of his 3D detailed stress analysis case studies, and see how we compare with Digital Engineering’s published results!
This past year, ESRD’s Drs. Barna Szabó and Ricardo Actis collaborated with NAVAIR’s Mr. Dave Rusk on a technical paper titled “Fatigue Life Prediction of Flaw-Tolerant Damaged Rotorcraft Structures”. This paper was presented at the American Helicopter Society Annual Forum 74 in Phoenix, Arizona May 14-17, 2018.

“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.”
