Programme académique nCode

L'analyse en Fatigue est en train de devenir une partie de plus en plus importante dans le processus de conception pour un grand nombre d'industries, et aujourd'hui, un ingénieur qui sort de l'école a besoin de connaître les derniers outils utilisés dans l'industrie. Selon une étude[1] de 2008, les entreprises les mieux placées ont 1.6 fois plus de chance de simuler et d'identifier des défaillances des produits que des entreprises peu performantes. L'analyse de la contrainte par elle-même est souvent insuffisante et les produits sont couramment conçus en tenant compte de la casse selon des charges réalistes.

Depuis 1982, les produits nCode ont ouvert la voie avec des capacités d'analyse en fatigue dans les industries telles que l'aéronautique, l'automobile, la défense, le transport ferroviaire et l'énergie éolienne. Les produits nCode sont utilisés par plus de 500 grandes entreprises incluant Ford Motor Company, General Motors, John Deere, et Lockheed Martin. En fait, les entreprises comme CNH, Chrysler Group LLC, John Deere et Wyle sont en recherche constante d'ingénieurs disposant d'une solide expérience dans les produits nCode.

"My work is related to education and research in the field of fatigue and fracture of structures, with a focus on life design and analysis of gas turbine and aero engine. My research team has been using the nCode software to analyze the fatigue life of gas turbine rotors and to undertake research in high temperature damage tolerant design. Currently, the software has been successfully applied to the life analysis of ultra-supercritical turbines and cylinders, and the damage tolerant design of a new type of welded rotor. The software has a friendly interface and allows for my PhD students to develop new analysis methods. The analysis results obtained by the software are also in agreement with measurements. We like the software. It is a powerful analysis platform for research indeed."

L'ENSTA Bretagne rassemble, sur son campus brestois (France), une école d’ingénieurs et un centre de recherche pluridisciplinaires, soit 800 étudiants et 80 doctorants. L’établissement, public, forme des ingénieurs (civils et militaires) à la fois généralistes et experts dans un domaine technique de pointe

Les jeunes diplômés sont capables d'assurer, dans un environnement international, la conception et la réalisation de systèmes industriels complexes à dominante mécanique, électronique et informatique pour les secteurs innovants : le naval, l’automobile, l’aérospatiale, les nouvelles technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC), la défense, l’énergie … Dans la spécialité "Architecture navale et ingénierie offshore", les étudiants sont formés à la fatigue et la science des matériaux.

Avec le logiciel nCode, nous pouvons facilement enseigner à nos étudiants l'analyse de la fatigue des matériaux en prenant en compte l'ensemble des paramètres. Nous allons bénéficier de la base de données du logiciel à laquelle nous pourrons ajouter des données issues de notre laboratoire de recherche en mécanique (LBMS). Au cours des 10 dernières années, nous avons développé une méthode rapide basée sur la thermométrie pour établir des courbes de fatigue et prédire la durée de vie des matériaux.

University of Huddersfield

The Turbocharger Research Institute (TRI) at the University of Huddersfield has been established to develop training to support companies at the forefront of this technology and to conduct research relating to the use of turbochargers. The program is part of a UK Government Regional Growth Fund project and has links with leading firms in the field.

Prior to being appointed Professor of Automotive Engineering and Director of the TRI, I became familiar with nCode software in the commercial world. It is important for our MSc students to have exposure to the sort of commercial fatigue software that they are likely to encounter during their career.

HBM-nCode delivers lectures focused on fatigue and creep-fatigue at high temperatures as part of the Advanced Materials module in our Turbocharger Engineering MSc degree. We find that their expertise in fatigue and durability is particularly useful as turbochargers present engineers with many complex fatigue challenges. For example; aluminium impeller durability is driven by high speed centrifugal forces, creep is an issue for aluminium compressor housings, and thermo-mechanical fatigue is an issue for turbine housings.

Manchester Metropolitan University

Manchester Metropolitan University Logo

I teach Computer Aided Fatigue Analysis on the MSc Mechanical Engineering course at the Manchester Metropolitan University. We follow nCode 5-box trick process and use a suite of CAE software in an integrated manner including MBS(ADAMS or equivalent) to generate fatigue load, FEA(ANSYS) to determine the stress distribution and FE-based fatigue software(nCode DesignLife) to determine the ‘hot spot’ areas and calculate fatigue damage. The assignments are usually based on physical vibrating systems or mechanisms in the lab and require the students to carry out virtual fatigue design to achieve target fatigue life through iterations. At each stage, verification using theoretical solution or validation using measured data is carried out.

nCode is an excellent software for teaching and learning fatigue theories since the students can see how the loading scenarios, the stress concentrations and the cyclic material data as well as other parameters result in the fatigue behaviour of the component as they learned in the lectures and from textbooks. nCode software makes the study and practice of CAE-based fatigue design close to real-world applications since it can deal with complex loading and geometry and provides a variety of fatigue analysis options. In general, our students feel motivated to learn nCode software since they see the wide ranging industrial applications that their future engineering jobs may encounter. nCode software has also been used in several PhD and MSc projects involving automotive and wind turbine applications.

Oakland University

"I taught an advanced fatigue class on Vibration Fatigue Theories and Applications (ME 7

95) at the Oakland University in 2011 and 2012, respectively. In this class, my graduate students learned the theories and the procedures to develop fatigue validation test specifications for random vibrations and swept-sine vibrations. 

Since the nCode software has the analytical tools developed for the emerging frequency-based fatigue theories I covered in class, it then became the best application software for use in class. I was so grateful for the kind support from Jeremy Durrant and Jon Aldred so that my students can use the software for filtering data, comparing sine and random vibration inputs in terms of fatigue damage, calculating rainflow cycle counts, performing FFT on time histories and inverse FFT on power spectral densities, waterfall analysis, and developing automated test specifications. Through the use of Glyphs and Process development the learning process is sped up.  The alternatives can be very tedious and time consuming.  In the end my students learn more in a shorter amount of time with a tool like this.  I would very much welcome access to use nCode as a learning tool and for research purposes"

University of Michigan

Our university project team designs and builds single-seated all-terrain prototypes for the Baja SAE Collegiate Design Series. Our designs and analysis involve all sorts of testing and physical measurements taken with various sensors collected with a SOMAT eDAQ. Sensors include: wireless torque-sensing telemetry devices, strain gauges, accelerometers, GPS devices, and linear potentiometers, just to name a few. We use the collected data to better understand our component and system designs and the scenarios for which we design. The software also has an easy-to-learn interface, therefore it is simple for multiple team members to benefit from it. We are excited to further integrate nCode into our design process by using the software for more fatigue analysis as well as data reduction. For example, we used nCode software to collect telemetry data from torque sensors on driveshafts, and we are working to use that data to analyze the fatigue damage seen by the system.

"“I am currently using nCode for my EngD research whilst studying at the University of Warwick. In this research, I am working within a team of doctoral students to assess the current suite of vibration test standards available to Electric Vehicle (EV) manufacturers for the robustness and durability testing of their battery packs and cells. Prior to this research I gained experience with nCode in the commercial world and have read several academic papers on how other engineers and academics had applied the different functions within nCode GlyphWorks to evaluate the suitability of test profiles, etc. We have found nCode to be a valuable partner of WMG, offering support and a wealth of knowledge for us to draw upon as we research the effects of vibration of electric vehicles."
