The Composites Affordability Initiative (CAI) unanimously selected ESRD’s composites functionality to “replace as well as radically improve existing industry software currently used for bonded joints.” In time, the improvements extended to fastened laminated composite and metallic-laminated joints, reinforced composite structures, multi-scale analysis and more.
Instead of plate or shell modeling, we focus on the important details, such as interlaminar failure modes and thru-thickness ply stresses.
Our implementation is unique in the FEA industry for focusing on the detailed analysis needs of composite designers and engineers, including 3D ply-by-ply modeling and failure analysis.

S&A Governance can help make S&A more predictable, consistent, and productive. Without that consistency, S&A organizations usually lack common methods or shared practices. Consequences include poor re-use of S&A results with its many risks (product failures, increased costs and warranty claims, late to market due to engineering changes, etc.), costly duplication of work, and even the purchase of unneeded systems and solutions. S&A Governance is a strategic way for companies to establish a sustainable competitive advantage in innovation, product quality, and time to market.
