The CFG www site contains links to the FRANC2D and FRANC3D/Classic software as well as papers, presentations, and lecture notes related to computational fracture mechanics.


The US Air Force Research Lab at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio was instrumental in FAC's initial efforts to create the next generations FRANC3D software. FAC, along with SWRI, just completed a SBIR project funded by the Air Force.


The US Navy has been a long-time supporter and user of the FRANC3D software. Recently, FAC worked on two different NAVAIR funded SBIR projects related to fretting fatigue.
