Fatigue and Durability Day – Dearborn, Michigan

On June 27, 2016
Dassault Systèmes Simulia Corp.
3200 Greenfield, Suite 310
Dearborn, MI 48120 United States

Attend a free day of training on Fatigue and Durability: Getting Started with fe-safe. The cost of a similar training-day is $620, but we are pleased to make this available for free to SIMULIA customers! Refreshments and lunch will also be provided at no-cost to you.

This 1 day free event is aimed at helping new users to run their first fe-safe analysis and better understand how fatigue fits into the design process.

  • The day begins by introducing the fatigue theories that are core to the fe-safe technology: strain based fatigue and multiaxial fatigue.
  • In the afternoon an fe-safe software demonstration will walk users through a fatigue analysis, step-by-step.
  • An introduction to fatigue loading is provided, followed by a software demonstration.
  • We look at industry examples of fe-safe and 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.
  • The day ends by looking at some advanced functionalities of fe-safe such as TURBOLIFE, Verity and fe-safe for rubber.

This is an introductory level event. For in-depth training on the fe-safe capabilities, we recommend contacting Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA for the full fe-safe hands-on training course or visit our website.

Who Should Attend:
New fe-safe users and SIMULIA Extended Token users who have access to fe-safe but haven’t used it yet.

Seating capacity is limited. Please register early to reserve a spot.
