Learn the role of fatigue in product life through practical concepts!

This course provides an introduction to fatigue analysis methods, applicable to test and CAE-based fatigue calculations such as stress-life, strain-life and crack growth. Gain an in-depth understanding of practical applicability, concepts and nCode fatigue analysis software. Topics that will be discussed include, among others, introduction to fatigue as a failure, the physics of fatigue, multiaxial fatigue, fracture mechanics and crack growth and fatigue of welds.
