Fatigue Curves & Material Datasets

It can be technically challenging to simulate fatigue failure, but it's impossible to get accurate fatigue life calculations without specific and reliable materials data. Fatigue life prediction methods used in industry are often empirically derived from performing laboratory tests at different load levels, resulting in expensive material tests. nCode 10 introduces a new Premium Materials Database with 72 materials datasets derived at its own ISO 9001 certified Advanced Materials Characterization facility. This video provides an overview of how fatigue curves are defined and how to use them, and also the new Premium Materials Database introduced at nCode 10.
