Once you solve a fracture application with StressCheck®, you won’t want to use another FEA tool for that purpose again. You will experience ease of use, realize superconvergent extractions and receive the high definition feedback you need to guarantee the reliability and accuracy of the computed stress intensity factors (SIF) and energy release rates (ERR).
Fracture Mechanics Applications
When 3D surface flaws in complex parts need to be analyzed, StressCheck® is the logical choice.
StressCheck® is ideally suited for damage tolerance and forensic engineers who need the best representation of 2D or 3D SIF’s, ERR’s and beta factors for input in sophisticated crack growth simulations, or when analyzing repairs for mitigation of cracks.

“Aerospace materials scientists and structural engineers now have a new state-of-the-art software product called StressCheck®, which provides efficient and reliable analysis tools for composite bonded aircraft structures. A composites research team from the aeronautics industry, known as the Composites Affordability Initiative (CAI), has just completed an extensive study of current capabilities in the area of failure analysis tools for composite bonded joints. This study led the CAI team to unanimously choose StressCheck® as the software tool to replace as well as radically improve existing industry standard software currently used to size bonded joints.”
