Optimize your machine for the best FEA experience
Recommended System Configuration
The following system configuration is recommended for running StressCheck Professional on Windows 10 OS:
- Intel Xeon CPU @ 2.5 GHz or greater
- 32 GB Random Access Memory (RAM)
- 1 TB SSD scratch disk with SAS disk controller
- NVIDIA/AMD graphics card with 4 GB RAM or greater
- Windows 10 Professional
- Microsoft .NET 4.5 Framework
- Adobe Reader (for offline documentation)
Minimum System Configuration
The following minimum system configuration is required to run StressCheck Professional on Windows 10 OS:
- 8 GB Random Access Memory (RAM)
- 20 GB free disk storage
- OpenGL-compliant video card
Note: Operational efficiency of StressCheck is dependent upon the amount of RAM, the number of processor cores, disk speed and available scratch disk space. The more memory and disk space that you provide, the better StressCheck will perform.
For example, the below benchmark of 22770 3D tetrahedra representing a rib section under torsion was solved at p=5 (~1.6M DOF, 6 minutes) in StressCheck v11 Update 1 and required 13.2 GB of disk space and approximately 2 GB of RAM during solution processing:
And this benchmark of 9532 3D elements (9160 tetrahedra, 212 pentahedra and 160 hexahedra) of a longeron section under bearing/bypass loading was solved at p=6 (~1.1M DOF, 7 minutes) in StressCheck v11 Update 1 and required 17 GB of disk space and approximately 3.3 GB of RAM during solution processing:

“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.”
