SIMULIA Durability Day: Introduction to Fatigue & fe-safe

On April 14, 2015
Velizy France

Join us on this FREE one-day seminar at 10:00am CET!

The technical and economic value to be gained from accurate fatigue life prediction is significant. At this FREE one day event, we will introduce you to the "how", "what" and "why" behind modern metal fatigue analysis and how it fits in to your design process. We begin by looking at the reasons why accurately predicting the fatigue life of your components is so important and the theoretical concepts behind fatigue. Interesting industrial examples are used to show what types of analyses can be done using fe-safe and what the technical and commercial benefits of doing fatigue analysis are.

In the afternoon, an introduction to fatigue loading is provided, followed by a software demonstration showing how to set up an analysis in fe-safe. The day ends by looking at a full workflow example showing how fe-safe fits into the SIMULIA software portfolio. By using fe-safe alongside Abaqus, Isight and Tosca, product designs can be truly optimized for durability.

Who Should Attend: Those new to fatigue or considering fatigue software; Simulia Extended token users who have access to fe-safe but have not used it yet.
