FREE fe-safe Durability by Design

Dassault Systemes SIMULIA Corp, 3200 Greenfield Rd, Suite 310, Dearborn, MI 48120 United States

Join us for this FREE seminar from 8:00am - 4:30pm ET (lunch included).

This one day seminar covers the problems that can now be solved using durability analysis software for FEA models and explains how to develop a design process for durability.

  • The seminar works through the 5 crucial steps for developing a design process for durability. Working from elastic finite element models, the five steps are:
    • The calculation of elastic-plastic stresses and strains for complex loading and biaxial stress states
    • Modification of the endurance limit to allow for the interaction between small and larger cycles
    • The calculation of the life to crack initiation
    • Critical plane searching to determine the orientation of a potential crack
    • An assessment of whether the crack will propagate to failure
  • A technology update in key areas of fatigue analysis is provided:
    • Multiaxial fatigue, effects of temperature, notch sensitivity and residual stresses
    • Why traditional methods of metal fatigue analysis get it wrong
    • An introduction to modern methods of metal fatigue analysis and why they get it right
    • An introduction to using fe-safe with FEA software
    • An introduction to Verity® in fe-safe for fatigue of welded joints including spot welds
    • An introduction to fe-safe/Composites for fatigue of composite materials; fe-safe/True-Load for accurate in-situ load calculation and fe-safe/Rubber for fatigue of elastomers.
  • Meet the experts behind this technology

Who should attend?

Design and Test Engineers responsible for product durability in the ground vehicle, aerospace, and manufacturing industries interested in durability analysis. No previous knowledge of fatigue is necessary.
