Introduction to fe-safe/Rubber

Providing information and hands-on experience for calculating fatigue of elastomers using Abaqus and fe-safe/Rubber

Course Objective


Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand rubber physics and fatigue crack growth behavior of rubber
  • Use Abaqus/CAE to create and run models for use in fe-safe/Rubber
  • Use fe-safe/Rubber to create complete rubber component fatigue analysis models Use fe-safe/Rubber to submit and monitor rubber fatigue analysis jobs
  • Use Abaqus/Viewer and other tools to view and evaluate fe-safe/Rubber results

Not included is the Endurica CL command-line fatigue solver (see for the Endurica CL classes).

Who Should Attend

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using an FEA solver and the fe-safe GUI. Some overview of the fe-safe/Rubber GUI is given, but users are expected to know how to use the Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus/Viewer interfaces. If you have any questions about your preparedness for the course, please contact
