Engineering Simulation Consulting
for Fatigue and Fracture Applications

Let our fatigue and fracture experts help solve your engineering challenges by simulating your designs.

  • Design for Fatigue to include:
    • Low-cycle EN (strain-life)
    • High-cycle SN (stress-life)
    • Random vibration and harmonic
    • Thermo-Mechanical Creep
  • Bolt Fatigue
  • Weld Fatigue
    • Seam welds
      • “Volvo” method
      • ASME BPVC Section VIII Division 2
    • Nominal stress method
      • AWS
      • BS7608
      • IIW
    • Structural hot spot stress method
    • Effective notch stress method
  • Fracture Mechanics

Our projects include the use of

  • ANSYS finite element analysis (FEA)
  • nCode DesignLife
  • NASGRO V9.0

to help our customers identify and address fatigue and fracture mechanic challenges either during the design process or a failure investigations.
