ESRD to Exhibit and Provide Training Course at ASIP 2017
ESRD, Inc. will be exhibiting and providing a training course at the ASIP Conference 2017 in Jacksonville, FL from November 27-30. We look forward to connecting with our customer base, past, present and future!
The training course titled “How to use the Crack Propagation Analysis Tool for 3D Crack Simulation” will be held Monday, November 27, 2017 / 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM by Mr. Matt Watkins, PE. The description is as follows:
This 2 hour course will provide instructions for using the Crack Propagation Analysis Tool (CPAT) to simulate 3D crack growth at a fastener hole in a fatigue test specimen. Residual stresses due to cold-working of the hole are taken into account. CPAT provides an easy-to-use interface which significantly reduces the manual effort involved in complex crack growth simulations using the finite element method. Finite element solutions are computed using the StressCheck® solver, renowned in the aerospace finite element analysis community for extracting high quality stress intensity factors (SIFs) for complex parts and assemblies.
Demonstrations of the software will focus on features and capabilities that are particularly suited to the ASIP community, including error and uncertainty propagation throughout the crack growth simulations.
ESRD can be found at Booth 9 and will have several staff members available to chat and answer questions about StressCheck® Professional, CAE Handbook, StressCheck® Tool Box, DaDT applications, and more.
