Modules & Specifications
FEMFAT is available for Windows (64 bit) on X86-64 and Linux (64 bit) on X86-64.
FEMFAT basic: FE-based software for predicting the fatigue life/damage and endurance safety factors of components. Includes comprehensive FE-interfaces and material database.
FEMFAT basic is required to be open in order to use each add-on module listed below.
FEMFAT plast: A software module to consider the effects of redistribution of mean stresses when local plastic deformation occurs.
FEMFAT max: A software module for fatigue analysis of MultiAXially loaded components using time histories of loads or series of stress states.
FEMFAT max can be used with all individual modules but needs FEMFAT basic to be open.
The tools ELASTOLOADS and HARMONIC are add-on tools for FEMFAT MAX provided by ECS with a separate license. Please request access with FEMFAT Support if you need these features.
FEMFAT weld: A software module for fatigue analysis of welding seams for steel and aluminum using notch stress method and standards (DIN 15018, EUROCODE 3 and 9, BS 7608, IIW).
FEMFAT spot: A software module for predicting fatigue of spot-joints (welds, rivets) in FE-shell structures.
FEMFAT break: A software module for assessing static safety factors.
FEMFAT strain: : A software module for assessing damage from measured strains and comparing stresses from FEA and testing.
FEMFAT laminate: A software module for assessment of infinite fibre reinforced plastics respectively composites or laminates.
FEMFAT heat: A software module for the low cycle fatigue analysis of components that suffer from thermo-mechanical fatigue (e.g. cylinder heads, exhaust manifolds)
FEMFAT spectral: A software module to use Power Spectral Densities (PSD) for fatigue analysis in frequency domain for both Basic and Max analysis.
FEMFAT visualizer: A fast, 3D post processor to display the FE-model, fatigue results and imported stresses including stress animation.
FEMFAT parallel: Take the advantage to use more than only one CPU of your multicore workstation to speed up your analysis.
Modules and Products Not Currently Available Through the APA
FEMFAT LAB: Software for the administration of test rigs, analyzing time histories, identifying anomalies such as drift, mean shift and spikes that can be modified by a user; fatigue controlled mixture of track profiles generating equivalent damage; virtual iteration method in combination with MBS software.
