Fatigue simulation does not exist alone. It requires the strain and stress fields provided by a former finite element calculation. It can then provide a diagnosis of the number of cycles before a crack initiation. This type of simulation requires strong expertise because it is very sensitive to the input data of the problem such as the material data, the type of criteria, the states of stress and strain of the structure.
AROBAS Technologies has capitalized a cutting-edge expertise in fatigue calculation for ten years, leading to the development and publishing of SOFAST @nalysis. This software is developed internally by the IT specialists and allows post-treatment in fatigue from data resulting from different finite element codes.
