Multiaxial Fatigue Life Prediction

Many components and structures are subjected to complex loads in service, which may result in fatigue damage. In some cases, the magnitude and/or phase of local stress components may vary with time, giving rise to complicated multiaxial stress conditions. Multiaxial stresses require greater sophistication both in terms of modelling stress-strain response, and predicting fatigue damage.

This video will illustrate how nCode DesignLife can tackle complex multiaxial stress states using advanced models for multiaxial plasticity and damage accumulation.
