Fatigue Analysis - General Topics
Fatigue Curves & Material Datasets
It can be technically challenging to simulate fatigue failure, but it's impossible to get accurate fatigue life calculations without specific and reliable materials data. Fatigue life prediction methods used in industry are often empirically derived from performing laboratory tests at different load levels, resulting in expensive material tests. nCode 10 introduces a new Premium Materials Database with 72 materials datasets derived at its own ISO 9001 certified Advanced Materials Characterization facility.
This webinar provides an overview of how fatigue curves are defined and how to use them, and also the new Premium Materials Database introduced at nCode 10.

Important Factors in Material Fatigue Testing
Component durability is directly influenced by how the properties of a material will respond to loading. The accuracy of any damage calculation is dependent on the quality of the input data. At times we have no option, but to have our material tested to obtain the required material fatigue parameters.
This webinar takes a closer look at the important aspects of a material test, and how to specify the appropriate test with respect to accuracy and cost.

An Update on Materials Engineering & Selection
Materials engineering is developing at a rapid pace. New materials, which boast improved performance in many areas, are continually being introduced. At the same time, many traditional materials are being either changed or withdrawn through environmental legislation. Fatigue resistance is only one attribute of a material. As design engineers working in fatigue, it is important that we understand how fatigue performance is affected by changes in our materials. How do we specify fatigue performance? How do we know if a proposed material is a suitable replacement for an existing solution? Very often the understanding that led to those original solutions has been lost in time and we certainly do not want to reproduce errors of the past.
As a person with design responsibility you might consider the following point
- What questions should the materials specialist be asked?
- What data are needed to support the design?
- Can I guarantee the suitability of this material for fatigue?
This free webinar will provide a brief introduction to materials engineering and selection for new design engineers as well as offer a refresher course for senior engineers.

Helicopter - Shock & Vibration Qualification of Equipment
This webinar reviews the source of vibration loading on a helicopter and describes standard qualification tests that are used to ensure the safe life of equipment on the aircraft. It describes how the vibration environment can be measured in terms of a Fatigue Damage Spectrum (FDS) and Shock Response Spectrum (SRS). These spectra are calculated from measured flight load data as well as from the vibration test. By comparing the flight spectra with the test spectra, the paper shows how highly optimized vibration tests are derived.
Although the paper deals specifically with helicopters, these techniques are now common in all industries, including: ground vehicles, offshore, power generation and electronics.
