I used to support Autocad 2000 and Pro-Engineer at a previous job;  but 
they're high-dollar.  I'm not aware of any free packages that fully 
featured.  You might try Wikipedia.  They usually have lists or 
comparison matrixes of types of software.  You probably need a package 
that does 3D modeling to do what you're asking.

The stress testing is called "Finite element analysis", to give ya' 
something to google on.  Or check:

Some software offers inexpensive student versions.  Eg, AutoCAD for $160 
at the community college bookstore, if you're registered for the $60 CAD
