fe-safe, developed by Safe Technology Ltd., is a powerful and easy-to-use fatigue postprocessor for Abaqus. fe-safe uses proven techniques to accurately determine the fatigue life of metal components under complex cyclic loading. fe-safe combines finite element analysis results for multiple loading conditions from Abaqus with the cyclic load history to predict the life of the component. fe-safe includes a database of cyclic material property data, and permits users to add their own property data from fatigue tests. fe-safe reads structural analysis data from, and writes results to, Abaqus output database (.odb) files and results (.fil) files. fe-safe fatigue results are displayed using Abaqus/CAE or Abaqus/Viewer as contour plots for damage, fatigue life and safety factors.
