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.

“We have been having very good success using the P-Version finite element code, StressCheck®, to develop the 2-D solutions for two independent cracks in a plate. I have asked one of our AFGROW team members to model the plate and lug cases using StressCheck® and compare them to the existing AFGROW closed-form solutions. [He] modeled the cases several different ways to be sure that he was getting the best possible solutions. He has verified that the bearing load option in StressCheck® provides excellent results”
