The seminar provides an introduction to modern methods of fatigue analysis with particular reference to fatigue analysis of FE models. There is a strong emphasis on what is possible and the pitfalls to avoid.  Topics to include:
•    Overview of modern fatigue analysis methods for finite element models with examples of why modern methods are necessary
•    Strain-based methods to calculate life to crack initiation
•    The theory of critical distances
•    Multiaxial fatigue
•    The S-N curve approach to fatigue – strengths and limitations
•    Vibration fatigue and fatigue analysis in the frequency domain
•    Fatigue testing
•    Fatigue analysis from finite element models – the types of problem that be addressed.
•    Fatigue of welded joints. Local approaches to fatigue analysis of welded joints, and an introduction to Verity® structural stress method for seam welds and spot welds, with case studies
•    Thermo-mechanical fatigue and creep-fatigue interactions. The mechanisms of crack initiation for fatigue at high temperatures and for creep-fatigue. Ductility exhaustion, strain-range partitioning and other methods of analysis, with case studies
•    Fatigue of elastomers. Principles of fatigue of elastomers, fatigue analysis methods, critical plane analysis for elastomers. Case studies for fe-safe/Rubber
•    Fatigue of composites. Fatigue analysis methods for unidirectional fibers, laminates and woven fibers.  An introduction to fe-safe/Composites and case studies
fe-safe is technically advanced fatigue analysis software for FEA models. fe-safe incorporates the most sophisticated fatigue analysis technology available in commercial software. As a result, fe-safe is changing the way design engineers perceive fatigue analysis software tools.
