Value Proposition

FEMFAT is a solver for fatigue life prediction based on Finite Element results (stresses, strains, temperatures). FEMFAT provides a complete ABAQUS odb interface (also the predecessor format fil) for import of FE-structure and FE-results, and export of fatigue-results. All FEMFAT results can be fully visualized with the ABAQUS Viewer. Import of stresses and strains is supported for any kind of FE-analysis (linear, non-linear, quasi-static, inertial relief, dynamic, modal, transient). Combinations of stresses and strains can be defined very flexibly by lists of step and increment IDs, time ranges, ranges of steps and increments, etc. Further information can be found at
