ESRD’s software products and consulting services provide crucial support to a variety of aerospace and defense systems, enabling contractors and engineers with the tools, strategies and methodologies required to perform engineering simulations that are Simple, Accurate, Fast, Efficient and Reliable (S.A.F.E.R.) for the occasional user as well as the expert.
Aerospace and Defense System Support
In the Aerospace & Defense application demo shown below, ESRD and our partner Altair collaborated on a global-local workflow for an aero wing flap hinge fitting detailed stress analysis (model and input data courtesy of Altair).
Here are a few of the aviation, aerospace, and defense programs to which ESRD has contributed our simulation software, engineering consulting, or research & development expertise.

The software provides a highly reliable and user-friendly production stress analysis tool that will replace the Finite Element Method (FEM) tools and failure criteria the experts currently employ for analyzing bonded joints. The software includes an FEM-based handbook format, which allows non-experts to utilize models prepared by specialists. The handbook problems include built-in failure criteria, geometric and material nonlinearities, and the modern FEM technology provides better error control and the treatment of very large aspect ratios.”
