Reliability in Numerical Simulation Technical Brief
Abstract: The problem of reliability in numerical simulation based on the finite element method (FEM) has been addressed in a number of papers and books. The purpose of this document is to present a brief survey of what the writer considers to be helpful for understanding this important subject. The survey is focused on the application and formulation of design rules in mechanical engineering.

“Aerospace materials scientists and structural engineers now have a new state-of-the-art software product called StressCheck®, which provides efficient and reliable analysis tools for composite bonded aircraft structures. A composites research team from the aeronautics industry, known as the Composites Affordability Initiative (CAI), has just completed an extensive study of current capabilities in the area of failure analysis tools for composite bonded joints. This study led the CAI team to unanimously choose StressCheck® as the software tool to replace as well as radically improve existing industry standard software currently used to size bonded joints.”
