Correlating FE and Test

The Virtual Strain Gauge feature in nCode DesignLife provides a unique, powerful way of correlating physical test with finite element simulation results. It also facilitates the reconstruction of applied load histories from measured strain gage data on a component.

This video shows from start-to-finish how to setup Virtual Strain Gauges on your finite element model, and how to extract the strain results. It will also demonstrate the procedure for using load reconstruction to predict the input loads on a component during operation.
