nCode DesignLife performs CAE-based fatigue analysis by post-processing results from all leading FE codes, identifying critical locations and calculating fatigue lives. It has a state-of-the-art complement of CAE durability tools, from standard stress-life and strain-life fatigue analysis engines to specific solvers for welds, adhesive bonds, short fibre composites, etc.
This presentation will provide an introduction to performing fatigue analysis on FE models in nCode DesignLife. Attendees will become familiar with the nCode user interface and how create processes. The basic Stress-Life (SN) and Strain-Life (EN) fatigue calculations on FE models will be discussed in addition to more advanced solvers will be introduced.
