Introduction to ANSYS nCode DesignLife
- Training Time 2 Day
- Training Level Basic Medium Advanced
- Who Should AttendEngineers, Designers, Academicians, Students
For Your Questions:
This is an introductory course to the Standard ANSYS nCode DesignLife fatigue tool. It is aimed at providing students with the skills to carry out a fatigue analysis of components and structures in order to be able to make a durability assessment. You will learn how to use the results of a finite element analysis to define a damaging stress/strain history, how to assign fatigue properties to different areas of the model and how to use stress and strain approaches to make an estimate of fatigue life.
