Modules & Specifications
DesignLife for HyperWorks is supported on the following hardware platforms:
- Pentium (IA-32) Windows 7 32-bit
- Pentium (IA-64) Windows 7 64-bit, 8.1
- Pentium (IA-64) Red Hat Enterprise 6 (Linux)

DesignLife Base includes:
nCode Fundamentals: Entry-level product option which provides visualization and basic manipulation, signal processing, and filtering capability
DesignLife Base: Mandatory component of any DesignLife system that provides basic tools for input of data, processing, output, and viewing results. This also includes Virtual Strain Gauge capability that enables strain or stress data to be extracted from locations ion a model for direct correlation with measured test data.
Base Bundle Solvers:
- E-N Strain Life Solver
- S-N Stress Life Solver
- Dang Van solver
- Safety Factor solver
Advanced Solver Bundle
Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue Bundle: Provides solvers for high temperature fatigue and creep by using stress and temperature results from finite element simulations.
Short Fibre Composite Fatigue Bundle: Enables stress-life (SN) fatigue calculations for anisotropic materials such as glass fiber filled thermoplastics.
Thread Option: Rapidly solve fatigue large finite element models and complete usage schedules using multi-threaded processing.
MultiLoad Vibration: Enables Multi PSD and Sine on Random loading.
Modules and Products Not Currently Available Through the APA
Batch processing solver: The Partner Alliance version of DesignLife application has the same functionalities and features as the standard versions except the batch processing solver.
OptiStruct h3d (limited): OptiStruct h3d support is limited, and it currently does not cover the Vibration Fatigue, Spot Weld, Seam Weld, Adhesive Bond, and Short Fibre Composite Solvers.
GlyphWorks: Data processing system for durability
