FATIMAS™ estimates fatigue life from measured strain histories or individual tensors calculated by various techniques. An add on to nSoft, FATIMAS is a flexible and powerful tool – targeted at fatigue experts.
For the expert user, nSoft provides a powerful and flexible environment; one that can be used to implement new algorithms and analysis routines. Our command language, nCL, enables power users to customize their routines – perhaps to define automated routines to help less technically sophisticated users to crunch their data.
- Strain-life (EN) method to predict crack initiation, the stress-life (SN) method for total life prediction, and fracture mechanics for crack growth.
- Constant amplitude loads, product duty cycle or design spectra, and variable time histories from strain gauges
- Uniaxial and non-proportional multiaxial load cases
- Self-contained materials properties database, with access to others
- A high-level command language (nCL) that allows users to develop and automate the most sophisticated analysis routines
