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.

“At DST Group, we have effectively used StressCheck® over the last 10 years to determine accurate stress intensity factors. The results have been used to improve our residual strength and structural life estimates for aircraft in service with the Royal Australian Airforce, including C-130, P-3C and F/A-18 A/B. We have found it to be extremely easy to use and a very versatile code with which to create parametric models.
We have recently used StressCheck® to obtain improved stress intensity factor solutions (Improved stress intensity factors for selected configurations in cracked plates and Improved stress intensity factors for a single corner crack at a loaded fastener hole) for five key generic configurations. These transferable parametric results have been published externally. One specific example is the non-linear contact analysis of a cracked, filled fastener hole, with both fastener and remote plate loading.”
