For some applications, performing only a stress analysis might not be sufficient to assess a product's durability. When a product experiences complex load conditions, including time variations, a simple stress analysis can lead to incorrect critical locations and/or an overdesigned part. An in-depth fatigue analysis must be carried to correctly estimate the life of a product.

Computing fatigue estimates requires few additional steps once a stress analysis has been performed. Specific material data can be defined by the user or imported from the existing library of materials provided by solutions from ANSYS. Load variations are defined before the fatigue computation and results are automatically imported from the stress analysis.


Typical workflow for fatigue analysis

Based on the nCode DesignLife product, ANSYS Fatigue analysis solutions provide intuitive and easy-to-use software for performing fatigue analysis of finite element models. The solutions allow for efficient large-model analysis and complete usage schedules. A wide range of fatigue analysis capabilities are provided, including stress-life, strain-life, multiaxial, weld analysis and virtual shaker table.
