On February 12, 2020 a webinar on tips & resources for enhancing our users’ StressCheck® Professional knowledge, titled “Mastering StressCheck®: Practical Training Approaches & Online Resources for A&D Engineers”, was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster. In case you missed it, the webinar slides and on-demand recording are now available!
In recent years, Digital Engineering contributor, NAFEMS instructor and FETraining.net developer Tony Abbey has put together a list of practical engineering simulation case studies, walk-thrus and software overviews for a variety of FEA software tools.
Watch as ESRD reproduces a selected set of his 3D detailed stress analysis case studies, and see how we compare with Digital Engineering’s published results!
This past year, ESRD’s Drs. Barna Szabó and Ricardo Actis collaborated with NAVAIR’s Mr. Dave Rusk on a technical paper titled “Fatigue Life Prediction of Flaw-Tolerant Damaged Rotorcraft Structures”. This paper was presented at the American Helicopter Society Annual Forum 74 in Phoenix, Arizona May 14-17, 2018.

In this video demo, we show how to easily define a subsurface residual stress (SRS) profile, due to shot peening or another surface treatment, and apply it to a large 3D part for computation of distortion. StressCheck® Demo: 3D Subsurface Residual Stress Distortion Analysis Looking forward to your comments! ESRD Support
We have added high-resolution StressCheck® showcase videos to our resource library. These videos are intended to demonstrate StressCheck®‘s suite of modules and solvers, and cover a wide range of applications. Is there an analysis type you’d like us to showcase? Leave us a comment!

“A screening of existent commercial and non-commercial tools was carried out in respect to their fracture mechanics capabilities, their design abilities, implementation as well as their complexity. Although, there are many software possibilities, only those within the reach of the author were evaluated. This resulted in the selection of the commercial tool StressCheck®. The assessment of crack propagation on compact tension and two stringer specimens governed by the Paris and Forman regimes was satisfactory compared with experimental results using the material data from simple standard specimens.”
