Durability Simulation Essentials

Provides methods to calculate base metal fatigue using the durability tools in Structural Scenario or Mechanical Scenario apps

Course Objective

Durability is a requirement for product creation in many industries, because cycling loads can cause damage much sooner than a static load. This course introduces the Durability Analysis Case definition methods for base metal fatigue in Structural Scenario or Mechanical Scenario apps.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:


  • Perform fatigue simulations, view and evaluate fatigue results
  • Understand fatigue loading, material properties and simulate surface roughness


The course is divided into lectures and workshops. The course's workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual durability simulations.

Who should attend

This course is intended for the following role(s):

Structural Analysis Engineer, Durability Performance Engineer, Durability and Mechanics Engineer, Structural and Durability Engineer, Structural Generative Engineer or Composite Structures Analysis Engineer.
