FEMFAT Basic Training
Introduction to FEMFAT Basic, where you'll learn the different approaches to do fatigue analysis using FEMFAT.

Multidisciplinary Workflow to Assess Modal Fatigue Results of a 4-Cylinder Crankshaft with EXCITE-OPTISTRUCT-FEMFAT
The crankshaft of an engine is a highly dynamically loaded component that is continuously optimized and optimized in terms of design and production technology. In order to be able to reproduce this in the simulation, the essential influences must be considered. This includes the dynamically behaviour in combination with the engine, the material properties and the application of the loads and their transfer to other parts (bearings).

The modal approach has established itself as a proven method here, whereby a modal basis is determined in the FEM so that the crankshaft is integrated as a flexible body in the MKS model of the engine, and so that an entire engine run-up can be simulated. The modal participation factors are obtained from the MBS simulation, which are used together with the modal stresses for the safety factor calculation.

This workflow requires the combination of different simulation tools. The challenge is to organize the data transfer between the tools efficient and correct. In this example, the workflow is realized using Optistruct from ALTAIR for FEM calculation, EXCITE from AVL as MKS tool and FEMFAT from ECS as Fatigue solver.

This makes it possible to simulate a complex engine run-up with consideration of the ignition bearing forces and to calculate the fatigue life of the crankshaft in FEMFAT.

This live webinar, details of the simulation workflow of the 4 cylinder crankshaft will be presented and the effects of several influencing variables on the fatigue life will be studied.

Efficient Solid Meshing and Fatigue Assessment of Welds Using SimLab and FEMFAT
Typically, in the automotive industry, the numerical fatigue life analysis of seam welds is based on shell models. Determining the local stiffness and the fatigue life of weld details with those models is a challenging task; especially for closely spaced welds as well as for the connection of metal sheets to thick walled or solid components...

Webinar: 2 Years of FEMFAT User Meetings - More than 60 Presentations About FEMFAT
FEMFAT headquarters in Austria holds an International user meeting every 2-years, and in spring and autumn, five distributors organize in Shanghai, Tokyo, Michigan, Seoul and Pune regional user meetings with presentations according to the fatigue analysis of their customers. The webinar will show a short summary of four of the presentations which have aroused the interest of the audience. Some have made the “best lecture award.”

Fatigue analysis in Heavy Industries - the larger the vehicle the higher the need for endurance on misuse
FEMFAT offers fatigue life prediction (FLP) of all vehicle components (engine, gearbox, chassis, frames, car bodies and structures) and machinery equipment based on Finite Element Analyses (FEA). Additionally to consideration of complex multi-axial loadings an assessment of welding seams as well as spot welds and self piercing rivets in steel and aluminium can be carried out.

FEMFAT Webinar: Fatigue Analysis is Everywhere
FEMFAT is applied to mechanical systems in nearly all disciplines involving fatigue aspects. Engineers can follow the results and obtain approval from regulations such as GL Wind Renewables, IIW, Eurocode3 and British Standards.
