Fatigue of welds

Seam welding is a robust and durable way to join similar or dissimilar materials, but it is also susceptible to fatigue cracking.  Predicting the fatigue life of welded components is therefore critical to ensuring product durability requirements are met. In this release, nCode DesignLife offers a new automated method for finding the locations of seam welds in structures modelled in FE as solid elements. This greatly simplifies and increases the accessibility to the analysis of welds in solid models when using Seam Weld or WholeLife methods.

Frequency domain fatigue

Sigma clipping is most commonly used to make sure a shaker system is not damaged by overly large cycles from the excitation PSD profile. In this release, nCode DesignLife introduces the unique capability to simulate sigma clipping as applied by shaker vibration tests for a more accurate estimation of damage.

Test-CAE correlation

nCode 2020 introduces enhanced capabilities with Virtual Sensors to better correlate Finite Element predictions (FEA) and test results to minimize the need to run costly repeated experiments. The analysis engine in nCode DesignLife can now output of forces/moments as well as displacements.​

Video play and synchronization

nCode 2020 improves the ability to gain insights from data ​with a new capability for viewing multiple simultaneous videos in nCode GlyphWorks. Up to 16 videos can be played at a time, synchronized with further Video Players, signals, gauges, or digital readouts.

Faster MDF data reading

Automotive engineers working on the validation of a next-generation driver’s assistance systems (ADAS) will benefit from MDF file format enhancements introduced in this release. This accelerates the reading of both MDF3 and MDF4 formats. Usage monitoring and ADAS validation activities can be streamlined with ability to read native CAN data in binary format from the vehicle network in nCode GlyphWorks and apply DBC database files for decoding.
