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 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.”
