- - STRUCTURAL ANALYSES
- - material/geometrical linearity and non-linearity
- - low cycle fatigue
- - high cycle fatigue
Crack propagation analysis
Structure optimization to
- - maximize lifetime
- - reduce weight
- - reduce cost
- - large assemblies including friction effects
- - complex contact analyses
- - hyperelasticity: rubber components
- - creep
- - in design phase (less rework, early identification of potential problem)
- - in testing phase (less testing)
- - for needless prototypes (design problems are found earlier)
- - for warranty repairs (since lifetime is analyzed and evaluated)
- - you will deliver your product to the market earlier
- - high quality product will increase your competitive advantage
Design or confi guration change to satisfy requirements for weight, cost, lifetime and structural strength.
Designs comparison pafter the material, manufacturing
technology or geometry change, investigating impact on the
component strength, lifetime, deformation, etc.
Lifetime calculation based on low cycle fatigue analysis
for components with local plastic deformation (number of
cycles to crack initiation).
Modeling of the crack propagation inside the structure and the residual lifetime calculation.
