StressCheck v11.1 is Officially Released!
ESRD is pleased to announce that we’ve officially released StressCheck v11.1. With the release of StressCheck v11.1, we have made tremendous improvements to model rendering, load arrow drawing and load record updating performances to provide the user with maximum efficiency. This release also provides new mixed element meshing functionality in the Crack Front and Boundary Layer methods as well as the all-new Thin Section method, which allow the user to utilize pentahedral and hexahedral elements together with a traditional all-tetrahedral automesh. These improved, high-quality meshes can provide the user more accurate results with less computational cost, especially for fracture and contact problems.
