Fatigue analysis with FEMFAT
FEMFAT offers fatigue life prediction (FLP) of all vehicle components (engine, gearbox, chassis, frames, car bodies and structures) and machinery equipment based on Finite Element Analyses (FEA). Additionally to consideration of complex multi-axial loadings an assessment of welding seams as well as spot welds and self piercing rivets in steel and aluminium can be carried out. Components undergoing thermo-mechanical loadings can be assessed considering effects of material plasticity, elevated temperature (oxidation) and creep.
