In early 2020 ESRD rolled out v2.0 of the StressCheck® User Experience survey, and the results have been tallied! Find out what features & applications your peers want to see in a future StressCheck® release.
Hill Engineering and ESRD have executed a joint marketing agreement to collaboratively promote the combined use of our software tools Broad Application for Modeling Failure (BAMF) and StressCheck® Professional, respectively, for the engineering applications of fatigue and damage tolerance analysis.
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!
ESRD is pleased to announce our first webinar of 2020, scheduled for February 12 @ 1:00 pm EST.
This 2-hour, user-oriented webinar “Mastering StressCheck®: Practical Training Approaches & Online Resources for A&D Engineers” will detail training approaches focused on applications to make numerical simulation via finite element analysis S.A.F.E.R. – Simple, Accurate, Fast, Efficient, and Reliable.
This past week at ASIP 2019, ESRD provided a training course titled “Automated 3D Crack Beta Curve Development via Smart Sim Apps”, chatted with ASIP attendees, provided a StressCheck® Clinic, and exhibited at our booth.

ESRD’s Dr. Ricardo Actis attended and presented with technology partner Analytical Processes/Engineered Solutions (AP/ES) at the Engineered Residual Stress Implementation (ERSI) Workshop 2019 in Clearfield, UT. The goal of this annual workshop is to develop a roadmap for the implementation of the beneficial effect of engineered residual stresses in damage tolerance analysis (DTA).
Also, ESRD would like to extend our sincerest congratulations to the Washington University St. Louis racing team, who we sponsored this past year to improvements in multiple events, including engineering design. Great job, team!
ESRD, Inc. will be exhibiting and providing a training course on automated 3D crack beta curve development via FEA-based #SimApps at the ASIP Conference 2019 in San Antonio, TX from December 2-5, 2019.
On July 17, 2019 a joint webinar on the latest developments in FEA-based 3D crack growth simulation, titled “3D Crack Growth Simulation: Advancements & Applications”, was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster, LexTech’s James Harter and Hill Engineering’s Joshua Hodges. In case you missed it, the webinar recording is now available!

“At DST Group, we have effectively used StressCheck® over the last 10 years to determine accurate stress intensity factors. The results have been used to improve our residual strength and structural life estimates for aircraft in service with the Royal Australian Airforce, including C-130, P-3C and F/A-18 A/B. We have found it to be extremely easy to use and a very versatile code with which to create parametric models.
We have recently used StressCheck® to obtain improved stress intensity factor solutions (Improved stress intensity factors for selected configurations in cracked plates and Improved stress intensity factors for a single corner crack at a loaded fastener hole) for five key generic configurations. These transferable parametric results have been published externally. One specific example is the non-linear contact analysis of a cracked, filled fastener hole, with both fastener and remote plate loading.”
