Fatigue strength

The computational fatigue analysis with numerical simulation is based on the proven concepts of classical engineering sciences and the regulations of the relevant standards. Both the proven concepts and the standards are continuously supplemented, revised and extended by the new, constantly improving possibilities of FEM simulation.

Common standards and regulations include the FKM-Guideline for the calculatory strength verification for machine components as well as the SIA and Eurocode standards as unified regulations for design in the building industry. In addition, special industry-specific standards exist above all in the transport sector, for rail and water vehicles and in aviation. The following list shows an excerpt.
