In this edition of S.A.F.E.R. Simulation Views we asked Brent Lancaster, ESRD’s Principal Support Engineer, about the basics of StressCheck® Professional. Learn why it was developed, what it supports, how to master it, and more!
This past week at ASIP 2018, ESRD provided a training course titled “Modeling Fastened Connections: Hierarchic Approaches Discussion and Demo”, chatted with ASIP attendees, provided StressCheck® demos, and exhibited at our booth.
Read the summary of events and download the ASIP training course presentation, demo video and selected StressCheck® model files!
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.

“The p-type element has been used to great advantage in the finite element system ESRD StressCheck®, . This software provides the engineer with the means to conduct solution verification in an extremely straightforward manner by simply increasing the degree of the element, monitoring convergence and using Richardson extrapolation reliably to estimate the error. This can be conducted automatically by the software thereby enabling the engineer to concentrate on the engineering rather than the simulation. StressCheck® has also been used to develop ESRD’s Handbook and Toolbox applications. The first of these provides engineers with a repository of parameterised standard problems of the type found in texts like Roark’s “Formulas for Stress and Strain”, . The second, Toolbox, is a tool that can be used to parameterise a company’s range of components for rapid and reliable analysis by non-expert analysis. Toolbox then is an exemplary of the way in which the democratisation of simulation can be applied.”
