On July 29, 2019 a joint webinar on the the importance of Simulation Governance in FEA-based Sim App development & deployment, titled “Democratization of Simulation Governance-Compliant Sim Apps”, was provided by ESRD’s Brent Lancaster and Rev-Sim’s Malcolm Panthaki. In case you missed it, the webinar recording is now available!
Thirty years ago, on August 2nd, 1989, Engineering Software Research & Development, Inc. (ESRD) was founded in St. Louis, MO, USA. To commemorate this milestone, ESRD’s President & CEO Dr. Ricardo Actis would like to share a few words with you. Please take a few moments to read his commemoration.
Want to learn from the experts in FEA-based Simulation Application (Sim App) development for standardization & automation of complex engineering analysis tasks, such as 3D fatigue crack growth, 3D ply-by-ply laminated composite analysis or other challenging applications you’d like to safely put into the hands of non-experts?
This July, ESRD will be partnering with several industry leaders to provide not one but TWO stimulating webinars on the latest in FEA-based Sim App development.
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.
In this S.A.F.E.R. Simulation article, we explore the concept of Hierarchic Modeling, some practical applications of Hierarchic Modeling, and the importance of implementing a Hierarchic Modeling framework in CAE software tools to support the practice of Simulation Governance.

ESRD is pleased to announce that we will be attending and presenting at The Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering (CAASE) 2018 from June 5-7 in Cleveland, OH.
Why is Simulation Governance Essential for the Reliable Deployment of FEA-Based Engineering Simulation Apps?
How can the vision for expanding the use of numerical simulation by persons who do not have expertise in finite element analysis (FEA) be safely realized? The solution lies in the establishment of Simulation Governance through the development and dissemination of expert-designed Engineering Simulation Apps. Read more[…]
S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry Part 5: An Introduction to StressCheck for High-Fidelity Aero-structure Analysis
In this final post of our “S.A.F.E.R. Numerical Simulation for Structural Analysis in the Aerospace Industry” series, we will profile the stress analysis software product StressCheck®, what makes it different from other FEA software and the applications for which it is used in A&D engineering.[…]

The software provides a highly reliable and user-friendly production stress analysis tool that will replace the Finite Element Method (FEM) tools and failure criteria the experts currently employ for analyzing bonded joints. The software includes an FEM-based handbook format, which allows non-experts to utilize models prepared by specialists. The handbook problems include built-in failure criteria, geometric and material nonlinearities, and the modern FEM technology provides better error control and the treatment of very large aspect ratios.”
