In NAFEMS’ July 2019 edition of Benchmark Magazine, ESRD Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó reveals the converged StressCheck® solution for the incremental spring rates, provides a summary of the FEA Puzzler respondent submissions, and documents the various approaches taken by the respondents.
On July 17, 2019 a joint webinar on the latest developments in FEA-based 3D crack growth simulation, titled “3D Crack Growth Simulation: Advancements & Applications”, was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster, LexTech’s James Harter and Hill Engineering’s Joshua Hodges. In case you missed it, the webinar recording is now available!
This past week at AA&S/PS&S 2019, ESRD’s Gordon Lehman provided a training course titled “How Do You Verify the Accuracy of Engineering Simulations?”, chatted with attendees about StressCheck® and how it supports detailed aerostructures analyses, and exhibited at our colorful & engaging booth.

In this S.A.F.E.R. Simulation post, we’ll explore Five Key Quality Checks for verifying the accuracy of FEA solutions. To help us drive the conversation in a practical manner, we selected a widely available and well understood benchmark problem to model, solve and perform each Key Quality Check using ESRD’s flagship FEA software, StressCheck® Professional.
The deadline for the NAFEMS coil spring “FEA Puzzler” submissions has been extended through June 1st! View a teaser video of ESRD’s StressCheck® model and qualitative deformation results.
On Wednesday, January 16, 2019 a webinar titled “How Do You Verify the Accuracy of Engineering Simulations?” was provided by ESRD’s Gordon Lehman and Brent Lancaster.

In the October 2018 issue of NAFEMS Benchmark magazine, ESRD Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó posed a new “FEA Puzzler”: Can you determine the progression in spring rate as a 3D coil spring is deformed? And, can you verify the accuracy of your solution? Give it your best shot!
In recent years, Digital Engineering contributor, NAFEMS instructor and FETraining.net developer Tony Abbey has put together a list of practical engineering simulation case studies, walk-thrus and software overviews for a variety of FEA software tools.
Watch as ESRD reproduces a selected set of his 3D detailed stress analysis case studies, and see how we compare with Digital Engineering’s published results!
