Finite element analysis can be improved through correlation with measured strain. The Virtual Strain Gauge feature in nCode DesignLife provides a unique, powerful way of correlating physical test with finite element analysis results. It also facilitates the reconstruction of applied load histories from measured strain gauge data on a component.
This webinar shows, from start-to-finish, how to setup virtual strain gauges on your finite element model, how to extract strain results, and how to compare these strains. Solutions to improve correlation will also be discussed.
