Reliability in Numerical Simulation Technical Brief
Abstract: The problem of reliability in numerical simulation based on the finite element method (FEM) has been addressed in a number of papers and books. The purpose of this document is to present a brief survey of what the writer considers to be helpful for understanding this important subject. The survey is focused on the application and formulation of design rules in mechanical engineering.

“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”
