ESRD, Inc. will be exhibiting and providing a training course on verifying the accuracy of engineering simulations at the AA&S/PS&S Conference 2019 in Washington, D.C. from April 22-26, 2019. We hope you will drop by our training course and booth to check out the latest!
In this S.A.F.E.R. Simulation post, we’ll explore Five Key Quality Checks for verifying the accuracy of FEA solutions. To help us drive the conversation in a practical manner, we selected a widely available and well understood benchmark problem to model, solve and perform each Key Quality Check using ESRD’s flagship FEA software, StressCheck® Professional.
The deadline for the NAFEMS coil spring “FEA Puzzler” submissions has been extended through June 1st! View a teaser video of ESRD’s StressCheck® model and qualitative deformation results.
We need your vote! ESRD is planning a Summer 2019 webinar on a “hot” Aerospace & Defense application, modeling best practice or StressCheck® feature, and we are requesting your participation in selecting the next topic.
Additionally, ESRD is hiring engineers! Check out the job postings at the end of the survey.
On Wednesday, January 16, 2019 a webinar titled “How Do You Verify the Accuracy of Engineering Simulations?” was provided by ESRD’s Gordon Lehman and Brent Lancaster.
In case you missed it, the webinar recording is now available!
This past week at ASIP 2018, ESRD provided a training course titled “Modeling Fastened Connections: Hierarchic Approaches Discussion and Demo”, chatted with ASIP attendees, provided StressCheck® demos, and exhibited at our booth.
Read the summary of events and download the ASIP training course presentation, demo video and selected StressCheck® model files!
Last month we asked our FEA-minded engineering community how we should improve StressCheck® Professional, and the results are in! Find out what was most important to your fellow StressCheck® users and FEA enthusiasts.
In the October 2018 issue of NAFEMS Benchmark magazine, ESRD Chairman Dr. Barna Szabó posed a new “FEA Puzzler”: Can you determine the progression in spring rate as a 3D coil spring is deformed? And, can you verify the accuracy of your solution? Give it your best shot!
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!

“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”
