Simulation Governance Is Critical for Reliable Condition-Based (Predictive) Maintenance
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.
The model was designed for estimating the remaining fatigue service life of high-value mechanical components, given their service history and that specific flaws (such as corrosion defects) have been discovered in them, thus enabling CBM to move damaged component removals from unscheduled to scheduled maintenance action.
- Mathematical models have both intuitive, creative components and objective, science-based components. These two components must be in equilibrium.
- What is the difference between finite element modeling and numerical simulation?
- What is the domain of calibration and how to specify it?
- How the outcome of validation experiments should be evaluated and reported?
- Why is the development of mathematical models open-ended? – Why no one can claim to have the last word?
- Why simulation governance is essential for the success of numerical simulation projects?

“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.”
