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[…]
S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry Part 5: An Introduction to StressCheck for High-Fidelity Aero-structure Analysis
In this final post of our “S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry” series, we will profile the stress analysis software product StressCheck®, what makes it different from other FEA software and the applications for which it is used in A&D engineering.[…]
In this month’s S.A.F.E.R. Simulation Views we asked David Rusk, Team Lead over Airframe Risk & Reliability, Structure Division, for the U.S. Navy NAVAIR Systems Command about the challenges faced by A&D programs. […]
S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry Part 4: Simulation Governance
In this fourth of our multi-part series on “S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry”, we will explore the topic of Simulation Governance, and why both simulation users and their managers on A&D programs should care. […]
Introducing S.A.F.E.R. Simulation Views, where we invite colleagues, simulation experts, and A&D industry leaders to address simple questions about simulation. In this edition, ESRD’s President & CEO Dr. Ricardo Actis is asked about the hurdles we must overcome to achieve simulation-driven design. […]
Converged StressCheck® results for “The Standard NAFEMS Benchmarks: Linear Elastic Tests” are now available for download! Read more to see how ESRD’s Simulation Technology performed […]
S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry Part 3: FEM is not Numerical Simulation
In this third of our multi-part series on “S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry” we will examine why Numerical Simulation is not the same as Finite Element Modeling and what this means to the structural analysis function within the A&D industry. […]

“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.”
