CAEfatigue VIBRATION On-Site Training

Fatigue and Dynamic Analysis of CAE Based System:
Theory and Practical Examples using CAEfatigue VIBRATION

This course is aimed at anyone who wants to understand more about random response and fatigue analysis methods. The course is also relevant to design situations where dynamic (vibration) response may be important and so there may be a link between fatigue issues and the dynamic behavior. Because both fundamental principles and the most recent technical developments will be presented the course is applicable to both the graduate engineer wanting to learn more – and the senior engineer wanting to know what the state of the art methods are today. The course will give a basic overview of fatigue evaluation methods – but from a quite unconventional perspective (concept rather than equation driven). No prior knowledge in these fields is required to attend the course. The latest developments in the field will also be presented and example will be run using CAEfatigue VIBRATION.
