Durability User Group Meetings 2018
Workshops, Tuesday 26th September
To support the fe-safe User Group Meeting, we are offering two FREE half day workshops. These will also take place at The Inn at St. John's.
Check in is at 8.00am. The Workshop will begin at 8.30am.
This half day class is a 'Getting Started with fe-safe' Workshop aimed at new fe-safe users, soon-to-be fe-safe users and any FE analysts who would like to better understand where and why fe-safe fits into the design process.
It is a pre-cursor to the full 2 day 'Introduction to fe-safe' training class and should not be seen as a replacement for the full training class.
- Introduction to Fatigue
- Stress-based Fatigue
- Strain-based Fatigue
- Multiaxial Fatigue
- Introduction to fe-safe
- Typical Problem Configuration
- Fatigue Loadings
- Material Database
- Interoperability with FEA
- Live Demo
- Including set up, analysis and viewing results
- SIMULIA Power of the Portfolio Workflow Demo, demonstrating how using fe-safe alongside Abaqus, Isight and Tosca can ensure that your designs are truly optimized for durability
Presenters: Pawel Sobczak & Ashwani Goel.
Check in is at 1pm. The Workshop will begin at 1.30pm.
This workshop provides a deep dive into vibration fatigue, looking at both the theory and practical examples. Open discussion is encouraged.
Topics discussed will include:
- When should you choose time or frequency domain methods? When is frequency domain adequate? Ergodicity, Gaussianity, Periodicity and Dynamic Conditions shall be discussed.
- Discussion of industries and scenarios where time and frequency are applicable
- What are the not-so-obvious assumptions made when choosing linear dynamics as the underpinning FE Analysis?
- How should you create the input PSD matrix and vice-versa, i.e., creating time signals out of PSDs. How to be sure that one corresponds to the other?
- What are the main differences between rainflow counting (time domain) and integrating a probability density function (frequency domain)?
- Can we trust shaker table sine-sweep tests to represent loading scenarios in the field? What is the sine sweep really representing?
