Introduction to fe-safe

July 27, 2021 at 8:30 am - July 30, 2021 at 12:30 pm EDT

In this practical introduction to fe-safe you will learn how to set up and run various fatigue analyses using fe-safe. The course includes many hands-on tutorials and practical examples.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Introduction to fatigue
  • The fe-safe user interface:
    • opening and using FE models
    • using data files
    • configuring fatigue analyses
    • the fe-safe analysis process
    • advanced export options
  • Loading methods:
    • overview of the basic loading methods
    • advanced loading capabilities
    • incorporating residual stresses
    • defining loading in fe-safe®
  • Fatigue methods, including:
    • strain-life methods
    • stress-life methods
    • factor of strength and FRF calculations
    • fatigue of cast iron
    • high temperature fatigue
    • fatigue of welds, including an introduction to the Verity® method
  • Hands-on examples and exercises, including:
    • choosing algorithms
    • configuring analyses
    • setting/using defaults
    • defining groups and group parameters
    • signal processing
    • the fe-safe materials database
    • using and plotting material properties
    • multi-axial loading

    • multi-block loading and damage per block analysis
    • analysis of flexible models using modal superposition (steady-state and transient dynamic)
    • additional loading features
    • export options, including export of stress/strain histories, Haigh diagrams, etc.
    • multi-axial fatigue from strain gauges
