Why StressCheck® Professional?

Automatic Solution Verification

StressCheck® Professional has built-in capabilities to automatically report solution accuracy for any function, increasing confidence in engineering decision making.

Hierarching Modeling Framework

StressCheck® Professional supports a hierarchic modeling framework for seamless transition between model orders and theories to separate modeling from approximation errors.

Parametric Modeling and Standarization

StressCheck® Professional allows users the ability to create a library of parametric computer aided engineering (CAE) models to serve as a repository for standardization and corporate design knowledge.

Key Features

Fracture Mechanics Parameter Extractions

StressCheck® Professional is ideally suited for damage tolerance and forensic engineers who need the best representation of 2D or 3D SIF’s, ERR’s, and beta factors.
