- FEMFAT can provide the right answer in any situation where the risk of fatigue failure can be high, regardless of the type of load (cyclic or vibrational thermal) or the specific scenario in which it is to be configured.
NUMERICAL SIMULATION – FATIGUE ANALYSIS
FEMFAT – Fatigue failure analysis
Fatigue is a mechanical phenomenon due to which a material, subjected to time-varying loads (in a regular or random manner), is damaged until it breaks (fatigue failure) even if it has remained within its elastic limit, that is, despite the fact that during the useful life of the material the maximum intensity of the loads in question has been maintained at a value significantly lower than the breakdown or static yield stress (in the absence of stress cycles).
In reality, in fact, “unexplained” breaks in components designed to withstand much higher static loads are found. For this reason fatigue failure is still an extremely complex aspect to describe and predict.
It is estimated that fatigue is the phenomenon responsible for the great majority of failures of the machinery members in metallic material during operation: approximately 90% of the breakages follow the characteristic features of fatigue failure.
In light of the importance that this phenomenon, although complex, has in the mechanical field, TECNOHIT has decided to equip its team of analysts with an extremely advanced tool for fatigue analyses. This software is called FEMFAT, and is one of the most complete and powerful on the market, and which can benefit from constant technical development thanks to an immeasurable database of experimental tests, carried out mainly in the Automotive field.
