ESRD’s Dr. Ricardo Actis attended and presented with technology partner Analytical Processes/Engineered Solutions (AP/ES) at the Engineered Residual Stress Implementation (ERSI) Workshop 2018 in Clearfield, UT. This annual workshop is focused on the development of a damage tolerance methodologies for fatigue crack growth through deep Engineered Residual Stress (ERS) fields.
ESRD, Inc. will be exhibiting and providing a training course on modeling fastened connections at the ASIP Conference 2018 in Phoenix, AZ from November 26-29, 2018.
In this S.A.F.E.R. Simulation article, we explore the concept of Hierarchic Modeling, some practical applications of Hierarchic Modeling, and the importance of implementing a Hierarchic Modeling framework in CAE software tools to support the practice of Simulation Governance.
This past year, ESRD’s Drs. Barna Szabó and Ricardo Actis collaborated with NAVAIR’s Mr. Dave Rusk on a technical paper titled “Fatigue Life Prediction of Flaw-Tolerant Damaged Rotorcraft Structures”. This paper was presented at the American Helicopter Society Annual Forum 74 in Phoenix, Arizona May 14-17, 2018.

Why is Simulation Governance Essential for the Reliable Deployment of FEA-Based Engineering Simulation Apps?
How can the vision for expanding the use of numerical simulation by persons who do not have expertise in finite element analysis (FEA) be safely realized? The solution lies in the establishment of Simulation Governance through the development and dissemination of expert-designed Engineering Simulation Apps. Read more[…]
