Verification and Validation Technical Brief
Abstract: A fundamental question of computational engineering is whether it is possible to predict the response of some physical system or process to various kinds of excitation by means of numerical simulation with a high degree of reliability. This question is addressed in a document published by ASME. In this note the main considerations are outlined and the relevant capabilities of the finite element analysis software product StressCheck® are summarized.

“A screening of existent commercial and non-commercial tools was carried out in respect to their fracture mechanics capabilities, their design abilities, implementation as well as their complexity. Although, there are many software possibilities, only those within the reach of the author were evaluated. This resulted in the selection of the commercial tool StressCheck®. The assessment of crack propagation on compact tension and two stringer specimens governed by the Paris and Forman regimes was satisfactory compared with experimental results using the material data from simple standard specimens.”
