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.
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.
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.

“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.”
