StressCheck®‘s add-on Utilities include the latest CAD translators and advanced automatic meshing tools, in addition to the native Parasolid CAD modeler and automatic meshing tools available in StressCheck® Core, to save you time and efforts in the FEA modeling process.
Fully functional CAD translators make the transition from your CAD tool to StressCheck® seamless, while advanced automeshing functions efficiently refine at local details.
MeshSim Advanced Module
The MeshSim Advanced automeshing utility is a powerful addition to 3D StressCheck® automeshing. This module enables boundary layer meshing for adding additional layers of elements around cracks, holes and fillets, as well as extrusion meshing for constant-thickness parts. Typically paired with the Fracture Mechanics module.
StressCheck® supports the latest CATIA v4, v5 and v6 3D Interop library formats.
StressCheck® supports the latest IGES 3D Interop library formats.

“The p-type element has been used to great advantage in the finite element system ESRD StressCheck®, . This software provides the engineer with the means to conduct solution verification in an extremely straightforward manner by simply increasing the degree of the element, monitoring convergence and using Richardson extrapolation reliably to estimate the error. This can be conducted automatically by the software thereby enabling the engineer to concentrate on the engineering rather than the simulation. StressCheck® has also been used to develop ESRD’s Handbook and Toolbox applications. The first of these provides engineers with a repository of parameterised standard problems of the type found in texts like Roark’s “Formulas for Stress and Strain”, . The second, Toolbox, is a tool that can be used to parameterise a company’s range of components for rapid and reliable analysis by non-expert analysis. Toolbox then is an exemplary of the way in which the democratisation of simulation can be applied.”
