Durability Analysis Software for Finite Element Models

safe4fatigue

safe4fatigue is an integrated system for managing durability analysis. It provides advanced multiaxial fatigue and durability analysis from measured or simulated strain signals, peak-valley files, cycle histograms and PSDs.

safe4fatigue is included in fe-safe as a no-added-cost module. It provides all the capabilities needed to analyse practical durability applications without the overhead of complex ‘management' systems. Its attractive, easy-to-use user interface provides fast access to complex analysis procedures. Repetitive tasks can be automated using powerful macro-recording and batch processing.

Regardless of the complexity of your fatigue analysis, safe4fatigue fits smoothly into your design process, enabling you to develop products that are designed for durability.

At a Glance

safe4fatigue is an integrated system for managing durability analysis and is aimed at the user who wants to conduct durability analyses from measured or simulated strain signals without the overhead of a complex ‘management' system. Results may be in the form of cycle and damage histograms, cycle and damage density diagrams, stress-strain hysteresis loops or plots of fatigue damage to show the most damaging portions of a signal.

safe4fatigue incorporates a powerful signal processing package, including modules for amplitude analysis, frequency analysis and digital filtering. It includes multi-channel peak-valley with cycle omission, lots of signal manipulation functions, rainflow, level crossing, time-at-level etc, and frequency domain analysis (PSD, transfer functions).
