Fatigue of Welds using nCode DesignLife

 

Welding is a commonly used and effective method for making structural joints between metal parts. However, the nature of the welding process means that these weldments generally have a fatigue strength that is inferior to that of the parts being joined together. The result is that, even in a well-designed structure, the welded joints are likely to fatigue. Any evaluation of the durability of a welded structure must therefore place a high priority on a fatigue assessment of the welded joints.

This presentation will review underlying methodology and approaches in nCode DesignLife for predicting the fatigue life of welds using finite element models consisting of either shell or solid elements.
