Ideal for designers and non-FEA engineers, StressCheck®-Powered Apps represent an upgrade over traditional engineering templates, such as home-grown spreadsheets and over-simplified solutions. With an increasing push for standardization and more simulation governance, ESRD began developing tools like the CAE Handbook and the StressCheck® Tool Box, as well as pioneering customized, FEA-based design templates.
StressCheck®-Powered Apps are easy to use and deploy, with no FEA knowledge needed.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a standardized, digital repository of parameterized models frequently used for supporting design decisions? Wouldn’t it be even nicer to have these models developed, documented and certified by experts to conform to best practices? CAE Handbook powered by StressCheck® puts the power of numerical simulation in the hands of designers, engineers and analysts. Meet the FEA tool you have been waiting for.
StressCheck® Tool Box
Through StressCheck® Tool Box you can access smart applications designed for your specific requirements by expert analysts. These are tools that help you improve your designs efficiently, utilizing the latest developments in CAE in a user-friendly environment, with built-in documentation, designed for designers, engineers and analysts.
ESRD will develop customized engineering tools powered by FEA that can be stand-alone desktop applications or analysis tools that are deployed via Internet through web pages. Contact us to learn more about the many different types of applications developed by ESRD, or to discuss an application development contract for your business needs.

Recent News & Events
The finite element method is used by engineers daily in the design/assessment of components and structures. The number of engineers using such tools is increasing and will increase further with the so-called democratisation of simulation. However, whilst the method might appear easy to use, with highly effective graphical user interfaces, the fundamental fact is that it is approximate and can produce significant errors in the hands of the inexperienced engineer. These errors, if undetected, can compromise a design to such an extent that it becomes unfit for purpose or, even, unsafe. The way to avoid such finite element malpractice is through the application of sound simulation governance.
