SIMULIA PSD Fatigue eSeminar

SIMULIA eSeminar March Series: March 1st and 22nd

SIMULIA eSeminar Series:

  • Thursday March 1st: PSD fatigue with Abaqus and fe-safe
  • Thursday March 22nd: Super Large Simulations with High Performance and Accuracy

Thursday March 1st: PSD fatigue with Abaqus and fe-safe

Register Here

PSD fatigue method is one of the popular vibration fatigue assessment methods (both testing and analysis) in many industries and it has been implemented in fe-safe since version 6.5. This eSeminar demonstrates the PSD fatigue analysis procedure with Abaqus and fe-safe. The PSD fatigue method and algorithm in the latest fe-safe version are mature enough to be used for the production workflows. This eSeminar also demonstrates the effect of PSD frequency resolution and the results comparison between time-domain and frequency-domain analyses of vibration fatigue.


SIMULIA PSD Fatigue eSeminar

  • Complete understanding on the procedure of PSD fatigue analysis with Abaqus and fe-safe
  • Ready to prepare all ingredients of PSD fatigue analysis including
    • PSD definition which can be converted from time history or given
    • Abaqus input file template with proper material definition, analysis procedure and output control
    • fe-safe PSD fatigue settings
  • Understanding on various algorithms of PSD fatigue implemented in the latest fe-safe
  • Results and efficiency comparisons between time-domain and frequency-domain vibration fatigue calculations
