nCode DesignLife – Fatigue of Gray Cast Iron Powertrain Components
Grey cast iron is a popular material for powertrain components due to its low cost, ease of machining, excellent wear resistance, and good fatigue behaviour. However the presence of flake graphite in the microstructure, make its behaviour quite different from most metals.
This 45 minute webinar will cover:
- Capabilities in nCode DesignLife to deal with the unique stress-strain behaviour of grey cast iron.
- Low notch sensitivity in fatigue life predictions.
